Poke The Bear
A 360 VR project exploring the question, what is art, without community?
The design conference Semi Permanent approached Guy Jamieson from Poke The Bear Animation a couple of months ago to see if they could help them create a promotional video for their conference. The theme for the conference was Deign For Change.
The brief was to utilise the 360 VR library of Getty Images to create a short film that reflected this theme. â€œOur idea was based around the question of 'What is art without community?'. The narrative would involve flowing through amazing 360 helicopter footage found in the Getty library on a journey looking for other artists to share our creations with.
The title, Does It Make A Sound, comes from the phrase If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound? Is art the same?
It was fitting that Poke The Bear sought to collaborate with other artists on this project. The fabulous designer/director Robertino Zambrano created the characters and concept art that went on to become this short film.
