Light and Dust – the possibilities of cultural AR

I just presented my current project on Augmented Reality experience design for the iPhone, for the staff at the Swedish Institute in Paris. I spent last month staying in one of their apartments, writing about polyaesthetics, digital literature and culture and the impact of social media. Today I returned to present the “Light &Dust” project. I am working with students at Georgia Tech Lorraine and Professor Jay Bolter on creating a cultural, expressive experience based in the Augmented Reality browser Argon: http://argon.gatech.edu/

Argon was developed by the Augmented Environments Lab at Georgia Tech and was just released as a free app.

It is interesting to think about the possibilities of Argon (and other AR-platforms) for location-based, atmospheric, multimodal experiences that go beyond commercial information. There are several interesting projects underway, and I hope to have a prototype of Light & Dust (or whatever it will be called when it is done) soon.
