Touring Technical Management
amigo & amigo

Affinity was created by amigo & amigo for Vivid Sydney in 2015. Since then it’s toured numerous international festivals, wowing audience members of all cultures and ages. The piece forms an abstract representation of brain neurons and invites the audience to touch sensors distributed throughout it in order to influence colours flowing between its interconnected nodes.

Through 2017 and 2018, I took a key role in the touring team as the piece’s technical manager. This included liaising with festival representatives both remotely and on-site, construction (bump-in) and removal (bump-out) of the piece, diagnosing and repairing hardware faults and damage, electrical and control hardware preparation and maintenance, and on-call technical assistance. Working with the piece provided some incredible opportunities to me as an interaction designer, particularly through being able to observe how various global cultures behave vastly differently to one another toward the same interactive environment/experience.
