Who would you like to be, if you could become someone else? An hero? A funny monster? Or a robot? BadaBodyPaint is the magic tool to give life and play with your imaginary friends. A collective installation for kids, that involves any age group with its simple mix of creativity, movement and surprise.
The process it’s very simple: visitors are invited to draw on a A4 template within the outline of a simplified human body. After expressing their creativity through markers or any artistic tool, the drawing is put into a ‘magic box’ that acts like a scanner. The picture is then transformed into a living projection, that the visitors can animate.
The unexpected reaction of the creatures to the movement of one’s body creates a funny atmosphere of dance and play. The simplicity of the experience invites the viewer to take active part in the installation rather than just stare at it.
