The University of Salford showcases digital creativity this Saturday

The University of Salford is holding a “celebration of the latest in digital entertainment and creativity” called Believe at its new MediaCityUK site on Saturday 12 November.

Works on show will include:

  • Lowry to Life. This is described as an ambitious digital re-imagining of LS Lowry’s Piccadilly Gardens painting. Members of the public walking through Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester city centre on Saturday 12 November can literally become part of the art as special motion capture technology will transfer their movements to Lowry characters shown on a giant projection of the painting at MediaCityUK, so the picture will come to life with moving men, women and children.
  • A chance to star in the BBC’s Dinosaur Planet thanks to green screen technology.
  • A spectacular 3D film of digital dancers, courtesy of renowned Austrian art technology group Ars Electronica,
There’s lots more lined up too, plus free public transport travel to the event if you book in advance. You can find full details here:
