In this part of my research, I look deeper into Pasifika Traditions and customs of Talanoa and the Va, and what it means to me voyaging through unfamiliar territories as my practice develops. I use the shapeshifting sculptures, for ongoing testing in different media and social platforms in order to understand through experimental phases. I created this audio-reactive sculpture with the idea of how to process audio reactivity through AR (Augmented reality). This is just the very beginning of the research project. This is my response to these spaces of shared knowledge thus far.

‘Making the invisible voices appear visible’

Using the ever-growing shapeshifting piece ‘Golden Pendulum’ to test the first iteration of ‘Audio reactive’ the animation is triggered by the sound of my voice and is recorded through the AR-powered glasses by Spectacles. I have since made a few recordings using the sound of my voice and music playlist to activate the work. Working on the 2nd iteration. Stay tuned as the creativity continues……

We attended the Dali exhibition down at Spark arena in Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland, NZ) which provided a great backdrop to test the audio reactive values in the lens titled ‘Visible Voices’, using the soundscapes provided. It was great to see a lot of some Dali favorites of mine. Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of the New Man, Galatea of the Spheres, The Enigma of Desire, and my ultimate fave The Temptation of St. Anthony.

I’ve always enjoyed the idea of digital art taking over gallery and museum spaces. The hijacking of creative spaces with Augmented reality taking over creates a none authorized collaboration between live bands, music, and AR. Here are a few examples of hijacking creative spaces with AR.
