plex:us is a generative sculpture experience developed in partnership with and comissioned by Snapchat, for their 3rd generation Spectacles. The project explores our sense of play, presence, and perception through interactive AR, allowing users to bypass the usual divide between artwork and observer. Using spatial sound, tracking technology, and machine learning participants are transposed into a parallel digital space in real-time. plex:us imagines the hidden spaces that exist in the overlap between here and there, beyond the constraint of screens.
How does it feel to be in two places at once? How can you feel something you can’t quite touch? Users can generate infinite unique creatures anywhere they wish, and once positioned in space, can move about with this new layer of reality.
