The Virtual Busker

Roly Skender

The Virtual Busker is waiting to perform for you. A small donation is required. Don’t worry, there’s no need to part with your own money. Pick up a token from the bowl and place it in the hat. You may be surprised!

The Virtual Busker is an original interactive audiovisual artwork suitable for all ages. It can be presented in foyers, galleries or outdoor spaces. Conceptually, it draws on themes of social interaction and the perceived threat of automation in a technological society. Its purpose is to create musical moments in public spaces, using only digital machines and human curiosity.
