Cross Realities

An evening on Art & Augmented Reality, part of 'A Crash Course in Art & Media Technology', a series of four events examining the intersection of art, technology, science and society.

Sep 2020
19:00 to 23:00
location: V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media

This section of the crash course looks at the long history of artists working with and reflecting on augmented reality technology. While V2_ has been conducting active research on this topic for decades, it’s only in the last couple of years that their application has become mainstream, in areas from games to military combat, surgery to shopping. Discover how art has helped shape the domain of augmented reality and join the continuing dialogue around the merging of analog and digital realities.

To help us with this we have invited special guests:

Sander Veenhof

Sander Veenhof

For artist Sander Veenhof (NL, 1973) the phenomenon of augmented reality is not just about virtual appearances or layers of information in the world around us, it's about how we're becoming part of the semi-digital ecosystem. Through the creation of prototypes he explores aspects of this future scenario. Fortunately, his AR projects are in stark contrast to the smooth and perfect AR future sketched in concept videos from Silicon Valley. In the past he tweaked his reality by creating GPS-based AR. Nowadays his works come to life through AR glasses and through interactive Zoom filters. In his presentation he will be talking about his artistic practice in relation to the past, present and future of AR.
