Mariken van Nieumeghen - animation project

A project about the story of Mariken van Nieumeghen, which dated from the 14th century. In collaboration with comic artist Erik Kriek Interakt will produce a book that comes to live when reading it while using a smartphone or tablet app.

 

This animation project makes use of augmented reality. This is a technique that brings the magic of virtual reality to the real world. By using your smartphone or tablet as a screen to see the world, the software adds music, animations, illustrations and other data to the world you see through your screen. It seems like there is a hidden world in the book which will only come to life if you see the book through you phone.
