Lilly in the Lab

Whoa. Something’s up! Is it an experiment gone wrong? Why is Lilly, a giant orange monster taking over the heart of Marda Loop?
  • Visit Blush Lane for Lilly to make a BIG impression on you.
  • Attend a screening of all of Lilly’s films!
  • Hunt around the neighborhood for Lilly themed specials
  • Download the Lilly in the Lab app and go on an augmented reality treasure hunt! (Augmented reality, or AR for short, uses the camera in your phone to superimpose animation on the real world.)
Created by Calgary Animated Object Society artistic director Xstine Cook in collaboration with the Bum Family (a posse of six filmmaking cousins ages 8 to 16), animator Kristen Loader and programmer Kyle Hinton, Lilly in the Lab is all over Marda Loop for 5 days.

Made possible by Marda Loop.

This artwork is supported by the Beakerhead Art & Technology Apprenticeship Program with supprt from Canada Council for the Arts.
