In the second flight of the ongoing Tandem Flight project, Marc led a workshop with a group of Onagawa children to draw new monsters to pedal the flying tandem bicycle. The drawings were digitized and animated, and overlaid on fresh footage – the landscape of Onagawa town and surrounding areas. In the original installation of this project, cartoon Flash monsters pedaled a flying bicycle over nighttime Los Angeles.

Children’s Workshop

10:30 am – 3:00 pm
Saturday, 31 August 2013
Town Baseball Stadium Temporary Housing, Onagawa, Japan

Children made fantasy monster paper puppets that were digitally collaged over the video footage, to make the Tandem Flight Onagawa interactive video installation.  There are face holes cut in the video screen and you can be the flying monster! Children who made a monster could then inhabit the installation and be the flying monsters of their own imagination!
