Rogers’ work explores the deep conviction that the construct of reality is but a small part of a greater metaphysical other. By creating perceptual shifts in the veracity of matter he seeks to both aesthetically and intellectually connect with a deeper understanding of what actually matters.
2021 SWELL ARTWORK – Cogito Terra Nullius, Darryl Rogers and Isaac Rogers
Cogito Terra Nullius is an augmented reality work that simply puts the viewer in the position of witnessing an invasion. This work is intended to build over a short period, as the viewer looks through the smart device they see, at first a small space ship descending over the water, quickly this grows to many, the ships grow larger as they come closer and decent. Ultimately there will be many invading ships, an ominous soundtrack alerts the viewer to some future invasion.
Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 10-19 September.
