A Polyphonous Avatar

Royce Ng

The 20 minute online work-in-progress takes the form of a live-streamed conversation with multiple voices speaking through the artist's digital avatar. The piece is concerned with the notion of presence conveyed through physical absence, and the minimal threshold of technological simulation that can produce the feeling of the performers's presence in the space for the audience. It featured a live dialogue conducted between the artist and a physicist on the topics of presence, virtual qualia, black box technologies and ways of breaking free from technological determination, presented through the morphing visage of a single avatar.
