Get Attacked by Birds. Digitally.
Director Chris Milk, who’s in the middle of developing two feature films and a big new interactive project, managed to find the time to lend his imagination to an exhibit at Creators Project San Francisco. Called "The Treachery of Sanctuary," the Kinect-driven, interactive installation allows visitors to the Vice/Intel Creators Project event to interact with three 22-foot tall screens. The triptych featured three different interactions--in the first panel, visitors could watch their silhouettes dissolve into a flock of birds; another panel had the birds swooping down to "attack" visitors and make off with pieces of their silhouettes; on a third screen, giant wings grow from visitors’ backs. Very, very cool.
