(  Vancouver-based artist Shawn Hunt has collaborated with Microsoft’s local maker space The Garage to develop an experiential sculpture at the crossroads of 3D printing, robotics, and holographs. Drawing on Indigenous imagery, ‘Transformation Mask’ functions both as a personal artistic expression of Hunt’s identity, and an exciting new showcase of what’s possible with Microsoft’s wearable augmented reality device, the Hololens.
“As an artist this has given me an incredible amount of freedom. I don’t feel that my work is conceptual, traditional, artefact or craft. It is neither ancient nor modern. Instead, I feel as though my work has elements of all of these categories. This is a freedom that allows me to distort, subvert, hijack and remix these categories in order to offer new points of view,” explains Hunt.
