Moles is a playful and poetic meditation on moles, self-exams, and skin cancer. In this augmented reality experience, different photographs are connected to a short personal video, a reflection on surface talk or what our Moles (our skin) can tell us about ourselves and our ability to negotiate risk and reality.
Moles is an augmented reality installation for galleries, festivals and even medical waiting rooms.
The project consists of five photographs and an app that runs on an android phone or tablet. Headphones are required. Each photograph links to a short video about memories, moles, and melanoma. Moles are beauty marks, warning signs and for some cultures, they are even predictors of fate and fortune.
