Transformation Mask: Shawn Hunt + Microsoft Vancouver

Heiltsuk artist Shawn Hunt has collaborated with a group of developers at The Garage, Microsoft Vancouver’s maker space, to create an experiential sculpture that transforms a person into a raven. The Transformation Mask creates a mixed reality experience combining the Microsoft Hololens, mechatronics, and 300+ hours of 3D printing. When the viewer puts on the mask it physically transforms and reveals artwork created by Hunt using Google Tilt Brush. Have a look at the video below!
