This is currently a proposal for my MVP presentation. I'll keep updating my progress here.
Considering the example of works like Kongo Power Figures showcased in Oceanic art section, I would like to work on recreating the original context of the environment they were associated with in the past. There is a strong connection with power and its activation.
We'll have to 3D scan few selected pieces to work with. Although these masterpieces are immobile and static in form, we can perhaps use 3D generative art to depict the energies of the past rituals associated with them.
It would be interesting to explore if we can make the 3D art responsive to live feedback. This way the users can be absorbed into the process of activating the energies, making him/her the diviner.
Women were always forbidden to witness or be a part of these rituals. Keeping that in mind, I'm curious to see how this project works interacts with people in modern society setup.
Following link is a really strong visual reference of what I'm trying to achieve. But of course, the results will vary for my approach.
