Most of the time my filters are connected in some way with my art or music. I use materials, objects and words to refract and highlight specific contrasts and contradictions in Japanese culture, habits, etc. I enjoy finding aesthetic forms and ideas in that space that makes up the between/border/difference
Stylized World object effect - discover fantasy worlds and art objects in the journey between worlds with Oculus Quest
Spark AR Track 2
On this project I had opportunity to work with Dmitry Susidko
We have combined our resources to deliver you the world object effect. It is inspired by our fantasy and it shows how people in the future will create and discover worlds created by imagination. We wanted to create a journey with narrative and atmosphere. The main challenge was to create all 4 worlds within 4 mb. During project, we learned how to work with same references & create together #tnxF8
Bubble Sculpture ~Personal Space~
This is my first Snapchat AR filter where I used a bubble to take advantage of the new body tracking system and better visualize human personal space in AR. Specifically I wanted to support dancers with this fun AR filter since I imagine many cannot practice in the studio due to the pandemic.
A.T.F “All The Feels”
This is my interpretation of the current phenomena of using social media and messaging apps to compress, blend and share emotions in shorter amounts of time and space. I wanted the AR filter to capture these emotions all at the same time - anger, joy, sadness, pleasure
Komainu are the traditional “lion dog” statues that guard entrances to many Japanese Shinto shrines. Often appearing in pairs, their presence symbolizes “Aum” or the beginning and end of all things.
Inspired by these spiritual principles, I wanted to introduce the Komainu into the AR world to reflect the synergy we have with each other, even over distance. More than ever, distance has become a relative term whether it be physical, social, etc. Technology makes less face to face communication necessary, arguably pushing us further apart, but also at the same time connects more people across the world in new and interesting ways.
