Computational Costume v1

Computational Costume v1 is a live 3 minute performance set in a speculative future with perfect augmented reality technology. The work shows the use of virtual costumes for public transit, the workplace and a medical emergency to express and communicate information digitally that would otherwise be out of immediate reach.

The work was presented as part of the FameLab 2018 semi-final for Victoria, Australia.
