“Morphing Clay” is an AI interactive Installation based on the design of the ancient chinese pottery that we developed with Google using Tensorflow and Unity. Nine body poses come nine different pottery shapes. If the players show their hands up in the air and wider their arms, our pottery would become taller. Moreover, if they move their body to the left and right, our pottery would lean following them.
More interestingly, the textures of our pottery also influenced by what the players wear. As we use AI to do the style transfer by integrating the player’s shirt patterns with the old chinese designs, this brings up the special pottery textures. Wrap these ancient pottery with these unique textures and they become an exclusive pottery.
We had installed our Morphing Clay installation at the WAIC 2019 and GDD China 2019 in Shanghai, China.
