You Were In My Dream

You Were In My Dream” is an incredible interactive animation project by Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine. You get the starring role in the animation (yes, that is my face!) provided you have a webcam. Notice how the shadow even goes over my face!!! Amazing.

  • Everyone was buzzing about the Arcade Fire music video but as far as interactivity goes, this is waaaaay better – would love to see more of this kind of thing

  • From just the website and the film snippet I have to say the the arcade fir impressed me more.

    Obviously it’s hard to compare as this is a real exhibition one has to experience in person and not in HTML 5 :)

    But the world it plays in is wonderfully crafted, plus the music adds to the atmosphere.

    great.

  • This was great this morning

    I don’t think its really fair to even compare the two but since you already did I’m going to say the Arcade Fire video gave me chills! This was cute? And pretty to look at but…didn’t come near to the affect the Arcade Fire video produced. Sure the concept might have been better than the execution but ultimately it was still really beautiful and moving!

    • yea i wasnt really talking about the content i was talking in terms of interactivity – people have been talking about the interactivity of the Arcade Fire video but for me it was less of an “interactive” video and more a “personalised” one – the same way a google ad targets you based on your area, sex, age, etc – it was kind of a clunky execution in my opinion.

    What’s this Arcade Fire thing? I feel like I’ve missed out.

    They received a $100 000 prize for this. I was at the award – must say Soda_Jerk’s work was pretty nice as well.
