Developing audiovisual AR experience with Project North Star
Presented by Sam Bilbow (2nd Year PhD Student @ University of Sussex)
This workshop has ended.
Talk Description: This presentation aims to re-situate multisensory augmented reality as an artistic medium for the creation of interactive and expressive works by computational artists. If an AR system can be thought of as one that combines real and virtual processes, is interactive in real-time, and is registered in three dimensions; why do we witness the majority of AR applications utilising primarily visual displays of information? Addressing this question, in this work I aim to foster a playful and creative way about thinking and interacting with augmented reality in order to realise the artistic potential of these new and exciting technologies
