Festival Holograms

This is my latest major project I directed during my final year at CSM: A series of audio visualiser character holograms which dance in time to any music played. 3D animation was done by Yizhen Ng and character rigging was done by Hamid Ibrahim.  

       
     
Festival Holograms - Characters in Music

Video directed by Richard Taylor and Liam Nary. My interest in digital avatars and audio visualization stemmed from my research into music identities during my final year of Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, where I specialised in ‘Moving Image’. Many music identities today use character or music mascots to distinguish themsleves from other music brands. Many entirely character-based virtual pop stars, bands and musicians have risen to fame, including ‘helmet-clad retro-futurists’ Daft Punk, cartoon British band Gorillaz, Japanese hologram vocaloid Hatsune Miku, and newly arisen Studio Killers, which comprise an animated ferret, weasel and a moody, stylish, fat girl with her hair in bunches.

When asked about the future of EDM and other genres of
music, Pete Tong (English DJ and BBC Radio 1 presenter)
answers, ‘I think the evolution of the scene will be more
about characters and personalities’.

Digital Spheres - Solo Show at Robert Kananaj Gallery

'Digital Spheres' was an all digital exhibition inspired by the world of online avatars and personalities at Robert Kananaj Gallery in Toronto, Canada. The line between online and offline is becoming remarkably thin in our minds as we increasingly create digital representations of ourselves online. Avatars, gifs, memes and emoticons help us to visualise who we are and how we feel in a digital realm where we cannot observe facial expressions or body language. The word ‘Avatar’ is the Hindi pronunciation of the Sanskrit term ‘avatara’ which means ‘to descent from’ and therefore ‘incarnation’. In this sense, avatars can be defined as incarnations of ourselves online. This exhibition was an exploration into digital avatar characters and sonas. Video shot by Allan Facollege and edited by Liam Nary.
