Minimation Booth

Produced in partnership with Spacex, Minimation Booth was an interactive workshop space located in Spacex’s atrium. It was designed to accompany Spacex’s exhibition ‘The North’, by Tim Brennan and as part of Animated Exeter 2007. Using mobile phone cameras participants were able to make low-res animations, which they could transmit by Bluetooth to a screen via V-Mob, free software designed by IDAT. The finished animations were then emailed to the participants at their school or home. During the public week (20-24 Feb) participants were also able to use a brand new piece of software called Pixel produced by Justin Roberts of i-DAT and commissioned for this project. This software enabled visitors to make a pixel animation and take it away immediately on their phone.
