Project Coordinator: Dr David Yip
 
The project covers three parts of the following interactive animation sequences with rising level of interactivity:
 
Part 1:      First Contact: getting attention
Part 2:      First Touch: playing with elements of surreal images
Part 3:      Full-body interactivity: creating new surreal images through body movement
 
A presentation entitled ‘Surrealism in 4D’ was given in ‘RIDCH Symposium 2017: Culture and the Humanities in the Digital Age: China Focus’ in January 2017. Later a paper with the same title was produced, which is about the use of VR technology to create a surreal dream in a virtual environment in the style of Salvador Dali and René Magritte. It allows users to become an ‘active creative dreamer’ when he/ she can interact with and re-shape object in the virtual dream. The article is expected to be published as a book chapter of the forthcoming book series Digital Culture and Humanities: Challenges and Developments in a Globalized Asia.
