An audio-visual work for iPads, robots and people

Scatter is a media art/sound/performance work for live and distributed voice featuring acclaimed vocalist Jessica Aszodi. The work draws upon the history of portraiture and the depiction of women through time, from canvas to screen, to both interrogate and disrupt the male gaze that so dominates this lineage. Composition by Peter Knight will see Aszodi’s voice (and image) fractured, processed and distributed amongst 64 speaker/screen set on moving robotic platforms creating an ever-shifting spatialised sonic/visual landscape.

Scatter is based on a collaborative partnership between Experimenta and Chamber Made, with support from the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision and QUT’s Creative Lab.
