Heres a 600 000 polygon quick look of the accurately measured and scaled St Leonards Pier from approx 1905 era
The Hastings Observer newspaper has kindly mentioned my artwork Apparitions. Using ‘Augmented Reality’ on their smartphones, the audience are taken back in time with models and soundscapes encapsulating the life span of missing heritage gems in the local area ; St Leonards Pier and Clocktower Memorial.
Two dates for the diary -19.09.18 and 22.09.18 when you can experience it without knowing how or why, or owning a smartphone. We will show you how and enlighten you with the history, technology and interactive art engagements at The Azur luncheon and free drop in event in Hastings museum.
Exploring the decay & changing nature of a seaside town now facing gentrification & associated social & cultural conflicts in a series of artworks where just a trace remains in St Leonards & Hastings. The audience is everyone with a mobile phones to view the augmented reality (AR) recreations & historical narratives, I will make ‘british ghosts walk in public.’
I can trigger missing Victorian architecture resurrecting them as 3D models attached to soundscapes with embedded stories triggered by vintage postcards & GPS locations of demolished sites : St Leonards pier & The Memorial Clocktower
Now imagine what the sound would be like out here.. Doppler effect of music, laughter, a zoo (!), skating, bands, sea birds, waves, quiescence
The new app for smartphones will be live from 01.09.18 for everyone to download from this site, it will enable people to experience the soundscapes and 3D models of both sites and allow themselves to be transported back to surreal moments in local history.
The trigger image are vintage postcards of these sites, and eventually GPS – location based triggering once we fully understand the accessibility of art through sharing some data about their current location especially with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws.
