Hex is an augmented structure which bounds different mediums such as, projection mapping and 3D printing together. It takes inspiration from a visual style which also showed itself in architecture, visual arts and design, Art Deco. Art Deco, has appeared in the early 1920’s. It includes radial patterns with sunlight as a symbol of the light of the drowning era, and geometry as a symbol of the machinery and technology. Hex embraces Art Deco’s relative simplicity, planarity, symmetry and unvaried repetition elements and combines them on a machine made object with projection mapping technology.
By combining these elements Hex aims to give audience an audiovisual experiment in the atmosphere of Art Deco.
