Future cities: Cody Ellingham paints a dream of Wellington's future

Globetrotting New Zealand artist Cody Ellingham recently returned to the motherland to host his high-tech visual art exhibition, Future Cities, in none other than the capital city. Thanks to the help of Sony, Ellingham and his collaborators on creative team Derive, Ruben Fro and SJF, used a process called photogrammetry to scan Wellington’s streets and buildings and used the photographs of tangible, real places to create immersive 3D worlds. The exhibition gave people a glimpse of a dream-like, fantasy version of their city, projected onto local landscapes, such as the National War Memorial of New Zealand.
