Virtual Doppelganger is a multimedia installation that combines figurative oil painting with an interactive 3D computer-generated game environment. An oil painting on canvas is displayed alongside its computer-generated replica, the 3D Virtual Doppelganger. The user can interact with the 3D Virtual Doppelganger via a computer-controlled motion sensor. The user can control the movements of the figure and interact with objects in the scene. Finally, the user becomes an active participant in the artwork.
