A Polyphonous Avatar is a 20 minute online work-in-progress preview of Royce Ng's performance PRESENCE which will have its German premiere at Kampnagel in late 2021 and takes the form of a live-streamed conversation with multiple voices speaking through the artist's digital avatar . The piece is concerned with the notion of presence conveyed through physical absence, and the minimal threshold of technological simulation that can produce the feeling of the performers's presence in the space for the audience. The preview will feature a dialogue conducted between the artist and physicist/inventor Dr. Alvaro Cassinelli from the Augmented Materiality Lab at the School of Creative Media, Hong Kong on the topics of presence, virtual qualia, black box technologies and ways of breaking free from technological determination, presented through the morphing visage of a single avatar.
