"Naturalized" Photo and Video Depict Integration of Virtual and Physical Worlds


The photo above is the latest in a series of images and videos shot with an iPhone. These naturalized images take me into a physical world setting without any green screen tricks to fake my placement in a physical world environment. Outside of clean-up to fix color balance and some minor air-brushing, what was there is pretty much what you get.

Although it's been fairly experimental so far, in weeks ahead you'll see me extending the concept of naturalized stills and videos into a number of human settings... participating in discussions around the family dinner table, out for a walk at the park..the sky's the limit! (hint, hint).

On a whim, we threw together a short behind-the-scenes video to provide a little flavor of the mix of physical and virtual in the shooting session for the image above.

Botgirl... on the GO! Sure adds a new energy to the viewing of (and pondering about) what we're looking at. Thanks for the demos. I'm sold.

Very cool. Just a side note...the naturalized setting could use some M&Ms. But very cool.

Bettina: It feels like rezzing in RL.

Michele: The junk food was out of frame. :)
