International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality, Basel

I will present some aspects of my art- and science project fleabag on the 10th IEEE international Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality, ISMAR 2011, in Basel, Switzerland, 26.10 – 29.10.2011, in the Arts, Media and Humanities programme.

Abstract of the presentation:

“Water in Augmented Space”

Water is both space and media at one and the same time. However, using only our human senses, we can hardly read the information that it carries. Augmenting this reality with the use of computer vision integrated into a biomonitoring system, we are able to read the water quality, at least as data values, in real time.

In the art and science project fleabag, the data values relating to water quality of a river will be analysed using this AR technology, and then transformed artistically to expand the human perceptual range through a sensually comprehensible, visual and physical presence on the river side, augmenting space as Lev Manovich once defined this term.
