with your smart phone.
Instagram will open if you have the app.

2. Follow the instructions.
Use the front camera view and tap the screen to place the experience.

3. From any vantage point in the space,
you’ll become a part of the AR experience.

Impermanence | Metempsychosis is an augmented & immersive experience, exploring rebirth and the ever-increasing complex nature of reality—in tandem with technology.

This dual exhibit consists of a five-part animation, which advances through the developmental stages of an unknown species. Throughout the journey, the observer maintains an intimate gaze but is never fully permitted to see the organism in its entirety. Privy only to an isolated view, a sliver of the truth is revealed.

Overlaying the experience, an Augmented Reality (AR) filter is designed to be placed anywhere within the setting. Adding an additional layer of complexity, the AR component renders the augmented environment indistinguishable from the subject and the subject indistinguishable from the space.

Metempsychosis and its AR filter both act as philosophical allegories, as well as deliberate visual compositions. Through the use of lines, the animations reflect both the structure of the display panels as well as their urban landscape. While the use of scale, color & light, evoke a sense of depth & harmonious tension within the space. The pairing of AR alongside the animations, both activates and unifies the experience, fusing together the user with the art itself and the surrounding world.

Rory Scott’s project Impermanence

Since 2010, Midwest-based artist Rory Scott’s primary focus has been on her ongoing project Impermanence—which serves as both her life practice and visual body of work.

Impermanence as a practice is an ongoing reflection and confrontation with the passage of time. An exercise of letting go and learning to use time as an agent of change, by creating deliberate & consistent patterns to achieve desired results.

As a body of work, Impermanence embodies these ideas through dreamlike imagery & the creation of augmented worlds that reflect the inner universe of memory and thought.

Scott said: “I want my work to convey the idea that when you change your thoughts, you change your behavior & action. When you change your actions, you change yourself. When change yourself, you change your community in turn.”

Repost @rks_xo: Sound on 🔊
The most important part of my experience Impermanence | Metempsychosis taking place @150mediastream is its AR companion, Quartz.

This is the first opportunity that I have been able to incorporate AR along with my animation work on a large scale. 

For me this is monumental and is my vision, focus & future of my work—blending realities and digital mediums as well.

Not only does Quartz embody my philosophical thinking about the perception of life and reality it also encapsulates my love of patterns as well. 

I hope people were/are able to experience this aspect of my show. AR is something new to most people and I often find that people tend to use it in a way that I did not anticipate—almost as if they are afraid of breaking something 😅

It’s ok, you won’t break anything. You can breathe, you can move around freely and you can start over multiple times if something doesn’t feel right or if  it doesn’t align with your perspective in the right way.

Looking forward to coming back out to chat about the project and to demonstrate Quartz & how I use AR—so get ready to bend & lean in💜

Try out Quartz yourself, in my AR filters 🪄

Repost @rks_xo

This was such a wonderful & unique project to work on. So much to think about in terms of the architecture, cityscape and the distinct panel design. 

One of my favorite attributes about the space, are the many vantage points to observe the work from. 

This element resonated with me deeply as I often think about how our own perspectives, positions & proximities to things in our lives impacts and potentially limits our own perception at times. 

These thoughts are at the core of the creation of this 5 part animated series of work—visually & philosophically. 

The animations were created with the intent to be viewed from any perspective. As an individual panel or as a collective whole.  Each panel has its own story, while adding up to a greater, yet obscured view of the whole. 

If you get a chance to visit the show, be sure to take it in its many views. Up close, as a whole and paired with the fragmented but scene unifying lens of the AR Quartz filter as well.💗
