- The Fourth Avatar

The Fourth Avatar

An interactive installation The Fourth Avatar reveals a new form of existence for an ordinary object and changes it's image through news article (text) context.
The spectator places his belongings inside the installation. The installation recognises these objects and find an article about the object in the Internet. The terminal then publishes the photograph and article about the object on www.stuff.mediamead.org. The spectator can see the page with these materials on the screen as well as on their cell phones.
After an interaction with the object, the installation initiates a kind of transition from its inherent 3D condition to virtual reality, where unexpected context is found for the object. Articles about the subject can change his imagery, as well as we are getting into different contexts to reopen ourselves.
