Visitors to ArtScience Museum can let their creativity bloom at Deep Field, an augmented reality (AR) and sonic art experience that is making its debut from 16 to 26 November 2023. Developed by celebrated Australian artists and creative technologists Tin Nguyen and Edward Cutting, who form the duo Tin&Ed, this collaborative and educational workshop brings individuals together to envision and co-create a virtual ecosystem of fantastical plants with others around the world.
Starting with a guided tour around ArtScience Museum, participants can draw inspiration from the surrounding artworks and environment to create their own unique plants. Following that, they can bring their creations to life through Deep Field by sketching their designs using iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, and experimenting with vibrant colours, shapes and textures.
The participants’ creations will be added to a global database depicting a wondrous new ecosystem cultivated in real time with artworks of flora contributed by other co-creators throughout the world. This hidden botanical world can only be unveiled through the wonder of AR, and by using the LiDAR Scanner on iPad Pro, participants can witness their artworks blossom into stunning 3D plant structures trailing across the floors, walls, and ceilings of the Museum. Additionally, the UV mode technology found in Deep Field allows users to explore their newly reimagined environment from the perspective of a pollinator.
As part of this experience, participants will be immersed in a multichannel soundscape of forgotten and extinct species by acclaimed audio naturalist Martyn Stewart, that enhances the spectacular sights and sounds of this ever-evolving natural world.
This experience is recommended for participants ages 8 and up.
