    Advancement in human computer interaction technology has transformed our world to become increasingly connected and interspersed with digital media and information. This has given rise to a new form of environment called ‘mixed reality’ that opens a hybrid landscape for artists, designers and researchers to explore in creative and innovative ways. This paper presents the development of a framework for creating immersive augmented environments and showcases two of my Augmented Reality (AR) projects, exURBAN Screens and MADA AR Posters. Both projects explore augmented interactions with smart devices, focused on human-computer interactions and human-real world interactions. The projects utilize contextually and geographically aware artistic AR contents and code design. These projects demonstrate the successful use of a Mixed Reality framework for employing augmented interaction methods with smart devices in exhibitions and public environments. Developing video seethrough display technologies such as AR glasses and other wearable smart devices are expected to take this experience to new heights. I can envision future environments becoming increasingly hybridized and fused, employing augmented interactions to enhance our sensory perception of the environment through computer mediated reality. This will create new pathways for sharing information and promote new forms of digital media and art. The paper concludes with my project findings and a vision for future development.
