Caroline Garcia’s project proposal was to work on three different components of new video work. These components included 3D scanning, motion capture, and 3D modeling to narrativize an archipelagic journey on a “soul-boat” through the underworld into the afterlife, borrowing from mythologies from the Philippine Islands. She recorded herself rowing a boat on water using motion capture technologies. She paddled in the McLane Center pool and filmed footage for AI-mocap software, and also explored real-time motion tracking by using a Kinect camera and 360 degrees underwater video recording.
