Let The All-Seeing Eye Reveal Your Inner Truth
The All-Seeing Eye is an interactive installation revealing the viewers inner truth through augmented reality (AR).
I teamed up with 3D motion designer Antony Kitson to create an augmented reality (AR) experience that promises to reveal your inner truth. Viewing the All-Seeing Eye artwork through a Facebook app sees the artwork come to life. The eyes spin and the four muses sway to divine the viewers truth, finally spelling out inner truths ranging from sunshiny, to in love, nervous and dead inside. Reversing the camera displays the corresponding mask on the viewers face.
The All-Seeing Eye installation was conceptualised in response to an open call by Birmingham Design Festival for work on the theme of truth. The concept questions if the medium/eyes through which you view the world can distort and affect your version of truth, and explores technology's role in presenting the truth and what control the user has.
All Seeing Eye is Antony’s first AR installation project, gathering skills from 3D modelling, animation & scripting to bring my 2D artwork to life in a fun & engaging way. Utilising Spark AR studio from Facebook, 3D and animated elements and textures were combined to create the All-Seeing Eye installation. Facial mapping & location based tools & scripts were all used to bring the project to life.
The All-Seeing Eye is exhibited as part of the Ladies, Wine & Design Birmingham ‘She Speaks The Truth’ exhibition available to experience from 6 – 20 June 2019 at Medicine Bakery & Gallery. Visit the @RevealYourInnerTruth Facebook page to try all the camera effects.
