Where AR we: experimenting with Augmented and Mixed Reality

“All reality is mixed reality”, Mark B.N. Hansen declares in the opening of his book Bodies in Code.[1] Although this statement might encompass endless meanings, Hansen’s interpretation is very specific: reality is formed via the mixing of bodies with existing technologies. As a result, Hansen explains, our situation is configured by available technologies, their applications, and the ways we employ both. Endorsing Hansen’s perspective that, ultimately, technologies plus bodies equals reality, this panel will be looking to explore how augmented and mixed reality technologies (re)mediate and influence cultural realities and social practices.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

-        AR\MR and memory

-        AR\MR and cultural heritage, preservation, and practices of the archive

-        AR\MR and the experience of urban space

-        AR\MR as public art

-        AR\MR as performance \ event

-        AR\MR as a tool for activism

-        AR\MR applications as social platforms

-        AR\MR and affective theory

-        AR\MR as a locative media \ cartographic practice

-        AR\MR and GPS\VR technologies

If you are working in any of these directions, or in any closely related field, I will be very happy to hear from you. Also, feel free to let me know if you have any ideas about other possible directions for this panel, I will gladly collaborate with other AR\MR enthusiasts! 

If interested, please submit: (1) a 250 words abstract, (2) a short bio (150 words max.), and (3) a short bibliographic list (3-5 items). To: liron.efrat@mail.utoronto.ca

Deadline: August 1st.
