Abstract:

  • This paper examines the process of interfacing between organic and technical objects and how this might be utilized as a tactic to promote invention within new media art events. Raphael Lozano-Hemmer’s Relational Architecture is examined in relation to concepts of parasitic action and folding to show how the work develops a complex ecology of relation through interfacing.

  • This paper examines the interaction and influences between the virtual and the real in Augmented Reality (AR). We explore how real objects can affect virtual objects and vice versa. Our work is based on theoretical considerations, a review of existing research and artworks as well as our own initial series of experiments. We argue that virtual and real objects can not only simulate influences that exist between real entities, but also influence each other in new and imaginary ways that have no equivalent in the physical world.
