Truth and Artifice in Reproductions of Nature

Summerbranch is a new commission by Igloo that explores movement and stillness in nature. Using camouflage and other disguises, a person or a computer character can blend into a ‘natural’ environment captured and treated through the moving image. This installation uses the tools of the military-entertainment complex: computer gaming, motion capture, 3D environments and special effects to question what is truth and artifice in our attempts to reproduce nature. Through the creation of a computer generated virtual world Summerbranch seeks to address this through the use of disguise in dance and movement. Igloo not only investigate the role of the ‘real’ in virtual environments but also that of the reproduction of nature in the history of art and particularly landscape work.
4 March – 30 April 2006: Reception for the artists: Saturday 4 March 2006 2pm – 5pmSummerbranch: A Capture 4 co-commission between ArtSway, SCAN & Arts Council England.
