V2_AR: Reality, Check!

RE: by Bram Snijders and Carolien Teunisse

Dec 2010
12:00 to 18:00
location: Gouvernestraat 133, Rotterdam

Reality, Check!, the third event in the V2_AR Ecosystem series, is even more open than the previous editions: artists, developers, designers and other experts are given the opportunity to present their projects to the community of AR enthusiasts. V2_ will make a selection of submitted presentations to guarantee a varied program. Each presenter is given a maximum of 10 minutes. Related presentations will be grouped in the program and discussed together in short panels. The V2_AR Ecosystem event is informal and invites active participation from all attendants.

For reference, please have a look at the recently launched V2_knowledgebase about Augmented Reality.

Keynote and projects

Keynote speaker will be Prof. Martin Wiedmer, director of the Institute for Research in Art and Design, Basel (CH). He is general chair of the conference committee for ISMAR 2011, the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality. Wiedmer will suggest ways of enhancing artists’ awareness of AR’s creative aspects.

The largest part of the day will be devoted to projects that are actually happening 'out there'. If you want to present your project, please contact Jan Misker at ar-ecosystem@v2.nl as soon as possible. The aim is to finalize the program on Monday December 13th. Keep an eye on the website to see the program as it evolves.

The following projects will be presented [updated December 13]:

  • Architecture
  • Projection & Spatial AR, moderated by Jouke Verlinden
    • Carolien Teunisse, Developments in augmented projection
