The Auratic Interpreter

Installation documentation of the Auratic Interpreter, a multimedia, video art, and kinetic sculpture.
UCSC Digital Art New Media MFA exhibit ULTRAshift, April 2017

In this interactive installation, an object is selected from a collection and placed on the divination hand. The object’s memories are documented by the chart recorder and viewed on the television monitor.

Part polygraph, part divination technology, this machine reads the aura of objects and creates a new form of storytelling through interactivity.
