“Shadow Art” is an AI interactive installation designed and developed by bit.studio which has been exhibited at various cities around the world including Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore and Mumbai, and, recently, we together with Google diligently developed it for Google I/O in Mountain View during May 7-9, 2019.
The installations use AI and TensorFlow to create magical experiences transforming users’ hand shadows into digital characters and creatures in interactive shows. Shadow Art is inspired by tradition and powered by AI.
These installations allow people to use their hands to create a shadow and morphing the shadow into a different character based on the shape of the shadow. Once the character has been created, they can enjoy watching how the characters interact with each other on stage and change the way the shadow play narrative evolves.
