Postdigital Neobaroque Transmedia
As part of an ongoing process of decentralisation and democratisation of the digital, *Triopic Spectacle* endeavours to flatten the hierarchies between the real and the potential–a radical concept initiated by 17th century baroque thought. The transmedial installation challenges the outmoded, myopic, binary thinking of local/global, 1s/0s, individual/collective, real/virtual, analog/digital, natural/artificial by establishing a series of two-way windows, bridges, interfaces, portals and glitches between three ‘triopic’ domains: ‘real reality’, comprised of physical, robotically 3D-printed architectures to be experienced and interacted with by passers-by; ‘mixed reality’, a virtual, spatial, boundless and immersive ML-developed VR space for augmented visitors (with VR goggles); and ‘virtual reality’, an interactive and online-based social space for online users to interact with the abovementioned realities.
