D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D + Audio AR

Towards the end of 2018, HLD embarked on an exciting partnership with Google's Creative Lab to explore two disciplines; dance and contemporary performance, and audio Augmented Reality (AR).

HLD were keen to use an existing performance piece called D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D as a starting point. D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D is a deconstructed art exhibit / fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse and extreme bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures.

The D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D sculpture court provided a unique platform to experiment with Google’s Creative Lab audio AR kit. The kit allows you to place virtual sound spheres in a 3D space using a mobile phone. Once the sounds are placed, audience members can walk around the space wearing headphones to hear the sounds, all of which are binaural and respond to the person’s movement within the space.

Join us at our next installation of D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D to experience it for yourself!
