Lately, he’s been researching the encounter and dialogue between real and virtual worlds and objects resulted in the book “Augmented spaces – real and virtual art in dialogue”
The book contains:
– Four virtual 3-dimensional sculptures and installations are embedded into the book using augmented reality.
They can be made visible with a web app on the smartphone or tablet and placed and scaled in your own environment. The virtual sculptures can even be captured photographically.
– Photos and videos from projections and performances.
– Critical Texts by Erik Büttner, Jan Gerling, Albrecht Haag, Ariane Hackstein, Jens J. Meyer, Ute Ritschel, Dr. Eva Schürmann, Chris van Uffelen.
The publication of this project can be supported on STARTNEXT!
