June 2020 – With assistance from Los Angeles State Historic Park, HDD put on our annual festival in virtual form with exhibits and interactive installations scattered through-out the park.
Instead of our usual festival activities which involve live performances and workshops, we utilized augmented reality to give attendees a self-guided, site-specific, socially distant, spectacular experience.
Park goers went on a journey from Ebb to Flow. In the Ebb section of the park, they encountered 5 static artworks representing the earth’s elements. With the use of an augmented reality app, they were able to bring these images to life to watch HDD dancers on video.
In the Flow section, audiences experience Collateral Damage, an immersive installation designed by Snezana Petrovic that spoke of the damage and harm that we, humans, are causing unintentionally on nature.
