Caddelle’s extended reality sculpture “All embracing” explores the tactile and intangible presence through the use of an App.  The steel and glass sculpture blends traditional arts with the multi-faceted digital experience with a life size augmented 3D sculpture.

“The blending and merging of traditional and virtual arts is opening an exciting new frontier for creativity, discovery and innovation enabling multi-sensory interaction.” – Caddelle

Caddelle is a Multi-disciplinary and extended reality artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa.  He explores this consequential divide with an innate link to the mediums of the “traditional” arts and the multi-faceted digital experience; for him, the immersive is not a solitary experience but rather one of sharing the discovery that contemporary art making can deliver. With this in mind he invites the viewer to interact and participate in both the tactile and digital evolution of art.

Caddelle’s “Electric Ladies” were recently showcased at Creativate 2019, National Arts Festival in Mkhanda and the inaugural series of Caddelle’s current “Electric Ladies” mixed media, Op-Art inspired artworks and sculptures, is a vibrant and energetic reconciliation of pigment and multi-sensory engagement with Augmented Reality.   www.caddelle.art/creativate.html
