Rehearsals A bin-packing algorithm – normally used for the transport or 3d printing industry – is used on a dataset of classical sculptures. This algorithm can calculate the optimal – occupying as less space as possible – packaging of irregular objects in a container. From this, a selection of the results are translated in a choreography for four dancers – designed in collaboration with choreographer Marjolein Vogels.

    What can computer vision learn us about our emotions The movie 'Arranging, Moving, Rotating, Packing' is a sequential 3d scanned movie based on poses of classical sculptures and a packing algorithm.
    The scanning was done with a process called photogrammetry which creates a 3d file out of photos of the 'object' from different angels.
    This specific created stop motion sequence consists of 8 poses and their trajectory - which was translated in a total of 200 steps, which was being recorded by a 3d scan studio that consisted out of 128 dslr camera's.

    So the final movie was made out of a database of 25600 images.
