Saturation is a digital water projection piece developed and produced by digital artist Joel Zika and Collide Public Arts Initiative with Voices of Frankston choir (VOF). The work uses a unique system of projection onto water mist which creates a real-world augmented reality, images you can touch and walk amongst.

In Saturation, performer’s faces appear on the cascading wall of water, creating a transparent three-dimensional interpretation of the choirs work to accompany their audio. Zika and Collide have worked with the VOF over many months to capture images and audio of the choir which will be presented on key nights over the duration of South Side Festival in Frankston. Saturation evolves to give the faces and voices of this particular Frankston community a prominence which they are not normally afforded.
