[un]natural

A mixed media exploration of Naiads, Dryads and Nereids from Greek and Roman mythology using augmented Reality, 3D modeling and neural networks to create modern interpretations of classical creatures of nature. Using the highly technological with the highly natural invites discussion about how at odds we are to the natural world and how we might use technology to better connect with the environment and assist our planet, that it need not be an either or thing but something to explore and evolve within ourselves. The creatures from mythology have long been a subject for painters and sculptors with a classical bent and the anthropomorphization of environmental concerns assists with the empathy towards the environment and its needs. By using machine learning and augmented reality through a mobile application interface I am seeking to grant the viewer an insight into a computers empathic reaction to our environment.

Augmented Reality takes our world and reconfigures it, it uses phone cameras and wearables to detect markers in the real world and alter the viewers perception via the app. 3D elements may emerge, or animations may play.

The works enabled can be viewed at exhibitions and listed locations on a pop up basis, as well as online, or in your home.

Download the app via the app store, open it and point it at the enabled artworks. Recursion is set up to be a seamless experience exploring the inner world of digital art.

About

I am consumed by the concept of a cultural zeitgeist, by ideas that are so large they have been shared amongst countless cultures over the ages. I am fascinated by what makes us human. My artwork centers around our religions and faith, our history and archaeology, our genders and emotions.

No live humans are used in my works. I use the latest in 3D technology to explore the concept of humanity, posing, shaping, lighting and texturing my lifeless figures until they take on a life of their own. I then collaborate with my computer using Machine Learning and Augmented Reality to bring art alive through your devices. I unite the possibilities of the computer with the unlimited possibilities of human ability to explore humanity by looking at what makes us people. our emotions, our beliefs, our fears and the ways we treat each other.

My works are unashamedly nude, but not erotic or titillating. They capture movement, gestures, emotion and encourage an empathic reaction in the viewer. The nude body is a beautiful, sensual, expressive entity and the human condition- the sum total of our beliefs and historical achievements is eternally fascinating. The beauty of the human form and the emotion evident in each gesture are endless sources of inspiration.
