The Butchers Disco of Manipulation

On 30th March 2007 the Victoria and Albert Museum in London hosted 'Friday Late', a collection of interactive animation and audio exhibitions and workshops put together by Nexus Productions Ltd.

The Butcher's Disco was an interactive display in the V&A's Tunnel which incorporated a PC projection, sound system and discos lights.

Volunteers lined up to have their digital images captured. The image was mapped onto a virtual reality 3D puppet and manipulated by a surreal butcher character, in the 'Butchers Disco of Manipulation'.
