Coinciding with the 59th Biennale di Venezia, Jam Sutton presents a new geolocated augmented reality sculpture in Piazza San Marco.
From April 22 - November 27, 2022
‘Lifeblood’, the augmented reality geolocated work stands 12 feet tall and creates a dialogue between virtual space and the historic Venetian setting. The sculpture can be located and viewed on a mobile device by visiting the link lifeblood.jamsutton.studio in Piazza San Marco, Venezia.
Sutton’s work explores technology and the depiction of human existence within digital space and virtual planes. From virtual and physical sculptures to digital composite paintings, Sutton utilises 3d scanning of his subjects to capture portraits as point cloud data. Through extensive digital processes, Sutton refines this data and creates sculptural works which examine digital existence within the context of human history and antiquity.
“I’m interested in the moment of transformation from human to digital form, from physical to virtual. I’m attempting to record not only the form and contours of flesh of my subject, but also portraying human physicality suspended in digital space.”
‘Lifeblood’ is a geolocated augmented reality sculpture on display from April 22 - November 27, 2022. The geolocated experience is powered by the Onirix AR platform.
