The augmentation of things (Auckland Art Gallery)

Join us to hear Grégory Chatonsky and Goliath Dyèvre discuss their recent works and share their fascinating residency project.

Selected as the 2016 Te Ataata Creative Technologies Artist Residency recipients, Grégory and Goliath form an artist-designer – duo of researchers who’s works focus on the relationship between materiality and digital in the contemporary context of the post-digital.

The collaboration between design and art will question the uses and their limitations. Their new research creation project The augmentation of things aims to build objects that are simultaneously in two worlds, tangible and virtual. In each world the object is incomplete, it is only when the two meet that it makes sense.
