KENTO, AR artist

Pushing the boundaries of augmented live performances

2019 - Los Angeles

In collaboration with Japanese artist KENTO, Moment Factory’s R&D team experimented with body tracking technology, real-time visuals and generative effects.

Moment Factory collaborated with Japanese artist KENTO to virtually enhance his multidimensional approach to music and dance, while deepening our understanding of the possibilities of mixed reality technologies. By tracking KENTO’s movements, we were able to amplify his energy and performance with visuals that blend hyper modern and traditional Japanese aesthetics.

Inspired by KENTO’s artistic vision, we explored body tracking and real-time visuals to create a series of live generative effects that could augment his performances for a variety of different contexts.

This custom mixed reality technology pushes the boundaries of the spectator experience and allows for new visuals at every show. Audiences can enjoy these enhanced performances in real-time through live feed IMAGs broadcasted on giant screens. By integrating invisible screens into the set design on stage, augmented effects can also enhance the live show itself.


With the use of a custom portable kit, KENTO can create new content and perform with augmented effects in virtually any environment, which can be easily managed by KENTO’s creative team using a custom AR app.
