Cheers consists on the creation of a bar, set nowadays, with an animatronic bartender, the aim was that by interacting with an object in the bar (writing in a piece of paper and placing it into the "tip" jar) the bartender was able to cheers with the spectator, giving every visitor the chance to celebrate a special or meaningful moment in their lives they want to celebrate or maybe even a bad situation they want to forget. This was inspired by a toy "Carley Weaver the Bartender" and my experience as a bartender. With the new situation we have encountered, my plan is to use a mix of digital and physical work to create a series of images that represent what my initial idea was supposed to look like, that will be done by sculpting some parts like the head and then building the environment digitally, through SketchUp and Blender.
