Augmented reality is a much hyped future technology. The basic idea is that the computer world and the real world will start to blend seamlessly, creating new layers of information over and about things in the real world.
Artist Pablo Valbuena‘s work deals with the idea of augmented reality, and plays with viewers perceptions of what is real. He recently performed a video piece called ‘Augmented Space’ on the surface of the Hauge’s city hall. The projection, part of the TodaysArt Festival makes the building seem like it’s constantly transforming into new shapes. It’s really quite amazing.
