- Augmented Reality (AR) is the phenomenon adding virtual elements into our physical reality. These addition are viewable by pointing your contemporary smartphone to the world around you. The phone knows where you are (because of GPS) and with this data it connects to the internet to get the relevant images, visuals, 3D shapes and it puts them into your view.
‘AR’ technology allows anyone to (re-)shape anything, anywhere!
An example: the MoMA building NY will host a ‘virtual’ augmented reality show on the 9th of October 2010 But, they don’t know about it yet. The infiltration is part of the Conflux Psychogeoraphy festival.
Mark Skwarek and Sander Veenhof, curated an exhibition of augmented reality art at the Museum of Modern Art in New York for this years Conflux. It includes a a collaboration between Mark and me on a version of the Border Art Memorial calaca model.
