You could download the app and walk around the town to see the creatures nest in the alleyways, service lanes and interesting spaces of the town.
The creatures were accessed via black and white patterned ‘portals’ placed in and around businesses, alleyways, displays and windows. By holding the camera view of the app over the pattern the creatures were revealed.
Awhi Creatures also had an installation in Papakura Art Gallery from September 5th to October 17th. People were invited to colour or make their own creature and display it on the wall next to an interactive immersive installation which included augmented and projected creatures.
Awhi Creatures was created by Kim Newall and produced by Maggie Buxton. It is simultaneously an economic regeneration, digital capacity building, creative engagement, diversity and place making project.
