For the past month, Featherblade and KupoKupo have been working on an up-till-now silent project, TateCraft, which has now been shortlisted in the final four of the IK Prize hosted by Tate Britain art gallery in London!
The project prototype was a Minecraft recreation of the painting ‘Liverpool Quay by Moonlight’, by Atkinson Grimshaw – with the idea of being able to walk inside a classic piece of British history, and observe and interact with it from the inside. Both the build itself as well as the resource pack were done by Kupo and Feather.
Should TateCraft be awarded the prize, other iconic and historical pieces of British art would also be recreated within Minecraft for educational use, and would represent a bridge in the gap between traditional and digital media.
Public voting will help determine the winner, so please put your vote in here!
