We're Blob Collective, but you can call us Blob.
Aotea Symphony is a free interactive sound experience. You’re invited to turn sounds from the city into a visual symphony through the Auckland Live Digital Stage, in Aotea Square. Collaborate with strangers of all ages and backgrounds to transform unnoticed surrounding sounds into a beautiful symphony, a song you can relate to in a joyful way. To create your very own symphony, simply step on the buttons and make your masterpiece! Then share your creations using #aoteasymphony.
This project started as a uni project which was a Finalist at Best Awards 2018, and in 2020, it was supported by Creative New Zealand.
As part of Artweek 2020, we collaborated with Auckland City Central library and Auckland Council to do a projection on the St James wall in front of the library. We created an audio visual experience that played with the windows of the wall, and with its relation to our lockdown period earlier in the year.
"Watch the windows of the St James come to life as stories and reflections from our lockdown period unfold."
As part of Fluid Borders exhibition's Ratatouille, presented at the Audio Foundation in September 2020, we created Shadows.
Shadows is an interactive installation that aims to make viewers move and explore their own body in a new light. As viewers explore their Shadow with movements and speed, it will follow them and interact accordingly. Viewers are free to choose how they want to connect with their Shadows, walk with it, dance with it, or blend it with others. As they step in front of the screen to activate their Shadows, viewers can explore this new world in front of them.
