In this Live / Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality experience, unsuspecting gallery visitors are taken aside by the Human Imagination Task Force. The HITF have been using a Pataphometer to map imaginations, preserving the imaginations of the chosen few in preparation for the coming Singularity.
With the most recent explosion of VR and AR technologies promising salvation from the threat of a peak-smartphone market, it is important that artists and designers forge spaces to challenge the social implications of this new medium. This work is also about exploring new kinds of narrative, a virtual space where PRESENCE + EMOTION + POTENTIALITY meet.
Human Imagination Task Force is about the relationships between language and power / poetry and imagination / technology and access / presence and absence.
HITF asks questions of the potential consequences of prolonged immersion in these emerging technologies.
