Score Generators (2013)

4 min 35 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

In Score Generators, Novak brings the musicality of twelve everyday objects within Auckland's Aotea Centre to life as virtual works the audience can activate using their own mobile device.

“We are continually bombarded with information from multiple channels, and as a result often overlook the wonder of everyday objects surrounding us. My work attempts to reengage the audience with this wonder using the very technology that tries to draw this attention away.”
