With the recent self-restraint mode narrowing down theaters and art performances across the board, this work was created in an attempt to find a new stage for expression through AR.
The work was created in an attempt to find a new stage for expression using AR.
A professional contemporary dancer dancing to an original piano created by a composer was recorded using motion capture and incorporated into the story of the picture book.
With the real world of Puroland as a backdrop, you can enjoy this new digital content that is highly realistic and engrossing all the way through.
The picture book created in conjunction with the AR is also available for viewing.

SANRIO PUROLAND PRIZE
Title of the work：Contemporary
Creator：TakashiKikaku (VR Revolutionaries / Japan)
Prize owner’s comment：
There are three points that I rated this work highly. Extensibility (the sense of depth that keeps expanding, and the technical possibilities for further expansion from here), immersion (the feeling of being completely immersed in the world created by this dance in a different space), and beauty (the images are so beautiful that they draw you in and make you want to watch more). When I imagined this world appearing in the space of Puroland, I thought “visitors can easily adapt to this digital content, enjoy a different kind of entertainment for a moment, and then return to the real Puroland without feeling uncomfortable.” I think this work embodies the new way of entertainment that we are aiming for, which is to “move back and forth between the real and digital worlds.
