TV On The Photo: Your Favorite Rock Stars Honor David Bowie w/ 3D Memorials
It has been 174 days, 21 hours, 20 minutes (as of this writing) since David Robert Jones — better known around the planet as David Bowie — was ushered into the Great Beyond. His impact on humanity and music lovers specifically was devastating as very few of us had any idea of the personal trials and tribulations he was going through at the time. An innovator, a creator, a family man and an activist in every sense of the word, Bowie left a long shadow on music and pop culture, a shadow only fully measured, perhaps, in the wake of his passing. The full extent of his impact, however, was demonstrated by an the all-star tribute was put together at Carnegie Hall to celebrate the life + legacy of David Bowie.
While acts like Jakob Dylan, Debbie Harry, Heart‘s Ann Wilson and The Flaming Lips‘ lead singer, Wayne Coyne honored the Star Man’s existence — behind-the-scenes was Super A-OK, a creative technology who used the A-1 Array to capture the moment in a truly unique way. As you can see in the gallery above, the A-1 Array is a multi-camera system that captures single moments in time and creates three-dimensional animations for instant sharing. The experience of using it alongside such legends as Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction, Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio and The New York City Children’s Chorus was impressive and very cool to watch in real-time. Among all the acts paying tribute to the immeasurably talented David Bowie, it was these still-cool, long-time listeners who were on-hand to salute Bowie’s otherworldly style and flair.
Okayplayer was super proud to team up with Emperor Go! Productions and the creative technology studio Super A-OK to create this amazing 3-D photo series during the David Bowie tribute at Radio City Music Hall using the A-1 Array. These two have went on to team up to develop a 3-D photo series of their own called Best Time, which will showcase and feature all of the great bands that come to New York City. You can check out more of their collaboration by visiting their Tumblr, here.
Scroll through these images, marvel at the many-splendored things made possible by 3-D and do it all while jamming some Bowie. Trust us, it’ll be an experience worth having.
