In this debate, we’ll look at the fusion of film and reality. Bas Heijne will talk about IFFR’s Signals: For Real program, which focuses on augmented reality – the addition of an audiovisual layer on top of the real world. We’ll talk about reality as a projection surface, the interaction between virtual and physical space, and the “scripting” of real situations. How do these new cinematic art forms influence our perception of reality? And what are the social implications of supplementing physical space with extra virtual information? Featuring artist duo eteam, media artist and V2_ regular Sander Veenhof, Michel van Dartel and cyberphilosopher Jos de Mul (TBC).
