Nintendo Announce 'Another Dimension' 3D Photography Competition


Nintendo UK have announced Another Dimension, which is a series of special events and an interactive gallery exhibition in order to celebrate the Europe-wide 3D photography competition that is underway.

A series of intimate photography field trips will be taking place in June by some high profile names which include Bill Oddie and members of The Saturdays. Work which has been created during these trips will be exhibited alongside the best 3D photo work from the competition within a special pop up installation which has been created by Graham Hudson.

Taking in themes including People, Places, Animals, Augmented Reality and Objects, members of the public will be invited to be a part of these memorable and inspiring experiences that are led by some of the UK’s leading personalities. Visitors will also learn how to take 3D photographs on the Nintendo 3DS which will be then entered in the 3D competition. Field trips will also be attended by a member of the Royal Photographic Society who will be there to learn people how to take high quality 3D photos on the 3DS. Although the field trips are Free and open to the public, they will be filled on first-come, first-served bases and people can gurantee their place by signing up to Confirmed field trips include:

June 1st: Dress up with The Saturdays

June 13th: Walk with Dinosaurs with Rick Edwards (Bristol Zoo)

June 14th: Street Art Walk with Pure Evil (East London)

June 15th: A trip to the Zoo with Bill Oddie (Battersea Park Zoo, London)

The best photographs will be featured as part of a giant installation at The Loading Bay from July 6th – 8th. The exhibition will be created by Graham Hudson, who will build a large-scale architectural sculpture created from scaffolding, to house the 3D images. Having exhibited at London’s Zabludowicz Collection, Auto Italia, Saatchi Gallery, Seventeen Gallery and a host of international gallery spaces, as well as being featured at the Frieze Sculpture Park in 2009, and creating commissions for Comme des Garcons, Hudson was also shortlisted for W Hotels’ Designers of the Future Award at DesignMiami in 2010.
