Augmented Reality

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

As far as using digital media as an inquiry into space and experience, I think this video by Bartlett M.Arch candidate Keiichi Matsuda is right on the money. Many of you have probably heard of “augmented reality,” a name given to the convergence of wireless media and location-based technologies. In a way, this video reminds me of the work of Thomas Demand (see below), whose photographs of paper constructed environments speak to the uncanny connection between our constructed, physical worlds and the parallel world created by our visual technologies. More information on Matsuda can be found here. What do you think of the difference between this video and the one by SO-IL in the post before this one?

Here is a video of the winning 2010 PS1 competition by SO-IL (Solid Objective – Florian Idenburg/Jing Liu). The other entrants in the competition included Freecell (Brooklyn), Easton + Combs (Brooklyn), William O’Brien, Jr. (M.I.T.), and BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group (Netherlands).
