Pussykrew presents: ༄ؘ ۪۪۫۫ / 𝖔𝖗𝖈𝖑 /✧:･
New-York based Polish artist and director duo Pussykrew have created a new augmented reality experience for Unsound 2021, with QR codes placed across the city, available to anyone with a mobile device. Each marker triggers an immersive story featuring an avatar delivering an AI-generated mindful message, piece of wisdom, or encouragement. Music is by Polish artists Zamilska, FOQL, Aleksandra Słyż and Antonina Nowacka.
From Pussykrew: ‘In a time of unrest, ༄ؘ ۪۪۫۫ / 𝖔𝖗𝖈𝖑 /✧:･ provides a spark for imagining and constructing alternative futures. The shapeshifting AI-powered deities cut across the layers of society, queering the urban space, sharing their rave, rage, and wanderlust. For those searching for metamorphosis and comforting energy, ༄ؘ ۪۪۫۫ / 𝖔𝖗𝖈𝖑 /✧:･ helps to transcend the past and welcome the new. Channeling the virtual, liminal, matriarchal and mystical, utilising techno-shamanistic practices, to bend the borders of other possible worlds, the avatars invite you to unlock your senses and listen to the messages from the spaces in-between to reclaim your energy.’
