Considering Nighthawks as a narrative environment, TEM worked closely with Dr James Fox and Bild to reimagine this iconic artwork.
Using xR technologies and Unreal Engine our documentary meshes virtual and physical worlds within a single lens based journey
Using optical analysis to inform the digital reconstruction, we have uncovered new and unknown aspects of the paintings geometry.
Working with paint simulation software and AI generated brushwork we have been able to extend Hoppers' iconic style far beyond the 2D canvas
By allowing Dr Fox to step into this virtual environment, his narrative journey can be crafted from an entirely new perspective; the inside of an artwork
Inspired but the framing of Hopper's unique compositions we consider the idea of viewpoint, to offer a series of alternative perspectives, on this very familiar of paintings.
This concept considers how iconic artworks can offer alternative narratives, viewpoints and experiences through the multiplatform integration with VR, MR and AR worlds.
Created as a pilot for the Masterpiece series, we are in discussions with potential production partners to expand the concept using virtual production techniques.
