I’ve always believed that computer graphics and puppetry are complementary art forms, but there are of course a lot of people who insist that the two mediums have a competitive – and possibly combative - relationship. While I don’t personally subscribe to that theory apparently certain Muppets do.
Earlier this week Scooter appeared at the TED 2012 conference, making a tongue-in-cheek presentation called Can Tactile Icons Survive in an Integer-Driven Environment? in which he made the case for puppets over computer generated characters and got pretty worked up about it. Unfortunately, the quality of the video isn’t great, but hopefully a better version will surface online soon.
