ORACLE

He Made She Made — Sydney, 2013

Oracle is an amalgam of concepts tied together by the common thread of the user interface. To that end, it is a reflection of AI and UI as they exist in society’s consciousness: On first glance masculine, cold and austere; yet muted in its austerity and restrained by a warmth that is undeniably feminine.

Oracle was crafted by utilising a hacked Kinect depth sensor as a 3D scanner, modeled in 3D space and 3D laser printed using a durable Nylon Polymer.

About Masked Intentions Exhibition

21 Artists reinvent 21 Masks for the 21st Century.

Gallery, He Made She Made invited 21 artists and designers alike to create and display a bespoke mask as part of their Masked Intentions exhibition and publication release.

No conceptual or material boundaries to the masks have been adhered to other than that they must be wearable and fit a human sized head. The finished masks take on various forms, presenting unique stories of their genuine/fictional significance to the world and their creators.
