'Artemis' is a tech opera based on the myth of the Greek goddess of nature and the hunt, each aria (Autumn Ayre, Mi amor la luna) and duet (Licht und Liebe) (Winter Duet) represents a different season of Artemis' life. 'Artemis XR' is one of the creative outputs from Taana Rose's PhD research project which seeks to innovate opera by utilising novel technologies to create new opera experiences. The visuals are crafted by painting in TiltBrush using the Oculus Quest headset, uploaded onto the EyeJack app, and reference images and QR codes are printed out. These reference images and QR codes are scanned by the audience to see the augmented reality overlays during the live performance. 

Composer, librettist, XR developer: Taana Rose. 

Please download the EyeJack iPhone/iPad app onto your device prior to the performance. You can download it here.
