Go Fund me : Priory Meadow Cricket ground

Mixed reality – the metal teapot survived the Bexhill Beach Huts storm, I can use something from Priory Meadow Cricket ground archives to be the significant enduring element for a new Apparition. This will happen and be distributed across the county for free if you help fund me – please share with organisations that will be interested in work exploring memory, nostalgia, heritage, technology in art.

Apparitions : Hastings’ Victorian gothic clocktower & Sufi music in India / Augmented reality 2

(Turn sound on ) One more screen capture of Apparitions – mixing reality of Hastings’ lost landmarks taken to India – triggering on iPad screen capture through ‘Recordit’, turn sound on to hear the ensemble of Sufi music playing over the AR triggered soundscape. The sounds I chose when making the app are encompassing its lifetime and space in Hastings, East Sussex, UK from 1862-1973. In this moment seagulls fly over and a 1920’s motor car drives past, we experience the clocktower’s chime and sounds overlaid on the peaceful Sufi music playing in the hotel gardens of Faluknama Palace, Hyderabad in India from augmented reality – Get the app free here : https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/apparitions-ar/id1431496591?mt=8

Hauntology

Since I began this artwork the concept of hauntology which was new to me has heavily influence my creative output – I read first about it in Stephen Prince’s book ‘A Year In The Country: Wandering Through Spectral Fields: Journeys in Otherly Pastoralism, the Further Reaches of Folk and the Parallel Worlds’ and he told me was informed of Hauntology from the writer Mark Fisher’s whose books I am consuming – firstly ‘Ghosts of my Life : Writings on Depression, Hauntology and Lost Futures’ & now ‘K-Punk’. Clearly all authors written routes are traced back to its origin from Derrida.

Hauntology – (a portmanteau of haunting and ontology[1]) is a concept coined by philosopher Jacques Derrida in his 1993 book Spectres of Marx. The term refers to the situation of temporal, historical, and ontological disjunction in which the apparent presence of being is replaced by a deferred non-origin, represented by “the figure of the ghost as that which is neither present, nor absent, neither dead nor alive.”
If you view my work in augmented reality I would like you to keep this in mind
