Noise Singapore provides young people with mentorship opportunities to strengthen their artistic capabilities by learning from peers and established artists. This is seen in Noise Metaverse by iMMERSiVELY which connects 14 mentees with experienced artists who incorporate technology in their practice. The two-month programme brings together youths with interest in technology as well as the arts, and allows them to have a unique experience of creating digital artworks using immersive technologies, such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR).
One of the projects that audiences can expect, Pop-up Books for the 21st Century, utilises AR technology to revolutionise storytelling for today’s audiences by appealing to their imagination. Eugene Soh, mentor of Leong Man Wei for this particular project says, “I am excited for the public to be surprised by how technology and the arts can enhance our understanding of each other, be it our lives, stories, viewpoints or aspirations.”
A public showcase of the final projects will take place from 23 February – 3 March 2019 which will reach out to diverse audiences interested in either technology or the arts – and in turn, become interested in both.
