During our Gunyah residency we plan to develop three new works for our upcoming exhibition at ATVP (At The Vanishing Point) in Newtown Sydney. The first is composed of sound bytes sampled from found vinyl records remixed with sounds recorded from nature. We will also be developing a free phone/tablet app based on 'Traces', to form a composition of narratives in our memory and how we remember events. The other work will be a series of interactive drawings with animated components revealed through the use of Augmented Reality technology, so that these drawings of landscapes and street-scapes gradually morph into alternative scenes.
