CANCELLED | There May be a Bird (Augmented Reality Installation)

THIS LIVE INSTALLATION IS CANCELLED IN RESPONSE TO THE VICTORIAN LOCKDOWN.

CONTENT WARNING: This installation features strong language.

There May Be A Bird delivers meaningful meaninglessness to the forefront of its reason for existing, celebrating absurdity through examination of the self.

Within one installation – projection, storytelling, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and abstract modern art come together to form spontaneous narrative, reflecting a collective state of being in surprising and engaging modes of delivery.

In spanning the gamut of traditional art through to new media, There May Be A Bird invites the audience to embrace the quizzical experience of organic patterns and stories emerging from quasi-unrelated sources, whilst blurring the lines between the real and the artificial.

There May Be A Bird and, there may not be a bird.
