Abstract:

  • Augmented Reality represents a collision of universes, between that of physical experience and the universe of symbols and meaning. Our passage back and forth between realities long predates our use of computers, and our attempts to separate the real from the virtual. Mixed and augmented reality offers the media artist rich territories for exploration wherever meaning migrates between the experiential and the symbolic. The authors? works in progress investigate both the practical application of mixed reality as an educational tool, and the aesthetic potential of the technology itself.
