help me obi
We make machines, sculptures, films and technology, often working remotely exploring expanded or dislocated space, causality and disorder.
As part of our project help me obi we made a live remote 360 holographic video call to NetPol in La Corderie L'Arsenale at the Venice Architecture Biennale from an isolated bothy in Scotland.
In help me obi we have built a machine to create 360 degree moving video objects that float in space. Where the viewer is able to walk around the machine and see the video object from any position. The connection to the dislocated video object is visceral, your understanding of your relationship to yourself shifts.
Referencing Princess Leia’s iconic appearance in Star Wars as a 3d moving holographic message, Help me Obi is an investigation of remote relationships, intimacy and dislocation.
Voyager, as remote video object, lights up in your imagination when the viewer knows more of the background of Voyager and what has happened in the last few months the relationship the viewer has with the baby on the machine doesn't need any background information, it's instinctual, alive and an extraordinary experience.
