The image above is the end result of /r/place – a reddit social experiment run for 72 hours from April 1st. Each user who logs into the site is able to colour pixels, one at a time, on this thousand by thousand pixel site. Collectively, the entire audience adds content to the site. It begins in chaos, but very quickly groups emerge, attempting to take territory, and create coherent images.
For me this is essentially a 2D version of the AR city I propose – and may be useful as a way for me to introduce the project from this point. A timelapse of the event can be seen below – as well as a good explanation (worth the watch if you have the time).
I have also developed a new screenplay over the break, attempting to respond to tables feedback as well as trying to find ways to use footage from Peru. Below are some early compositing tests from scene 2 – one low res render to see how composited objects were sticking to the drone footage and another is just a screengrab of the updated scene as I continue to populate/texture.
