Year the project commenced:2020 
Year it became impossible:2020 ​​​​​​​
The project 'Tracked' became impossible due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lock down restrictions, enforcing the postponement of all public events and putting into question the use of shared VR headsets for public exhibition. The public presentation of 'Tracked' was stopped indefinitely with the cancellation of 'The Great Rehearsal' event at Testing Grounds, in April 2020. Fortunately, the collaboration has continued to work together, and the project has changed format and transformed into something else. Initially this has taken the form of an augmented reality mobile phone app called 'Drawn to Sound AR App'. The app experiments with combining 360 video performances in different locations around Melbourne, VR drawings, field recordings, and music from Hearts and Rockets, and The Orbweavers, into an augmented reality mobile app. In the physically restricted landscape of 2020 it invites audiences to experience this work in their homes via their smart phones.
The app is free to download and available for Android and iOS devices here: This project was supported by a City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grant. Currently, the collaboration is seeking funding to develop a live stream performance and VR drawing that happens remotely, online and in real time.
