EEG AR: Things We Have Lost allows participants to conjure up virtual objects by simply imagining them into existence. A database of objects based on the broad theme of “Things We Have Lost,” which includes things such as pensions, empires and dodo birds, has been generated by asking the people of Basel what they have lost.
The project consists of a city-wide public art installation viewable on smartphones and other mobile devices.
