Constructing with Permeable Augmentation
This tea set is constructed out of two
realities, a solid physical form which is
then layered with augmentation, as if
dipped in a a lucid bath.
The elements of this tea set, a teapot,
teacup, and teaspoon, take on the
continuous and effortless transformability
that digital animation programs for 3D
designed objects are able to provide.
Using smoke as a strategy of manipulation
to the exterior, the possibilities of form
changes depending on the permeability of
the object and its environment.
Unlike digital animation, the silky smooth
spillover creates unrepeatable shapes,
manipulating the form of each object, it can’t
be fast-forwarded, rewound or looped. The
elements to this tea set become dependent
on the animation from the augmented physical
reality to activate its presence.
