Reject Reality and Substitute Your Own: Using Augmented Reality as Art Thomas Eberwein, “Ghost” (2013) (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic except where noted) Whether you like it or not, the digital invasion of Google Glasses is on its way, bringing the alternate world of augmented reality with it. As the late sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, who I really wish was here to react to the rapidly cyborg-like technology advances, forebodes in his 1978 essay “How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later“: What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudorealities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. Mark Mussler, Happy Pets, Thibaut Brevet, Cem Sever, “Tattooar” (2011-13) Potentially, the technology of layering one reality over another offers tantalizing possibilities for the integration of information into our daily lives, like the way we already rely on Google maps to get where we’re going (Google is really ahead on all of this).

Art in the drone age Taken from the June 2013 issue of Dazed: The future rarely comes to pass the way we imagine, or, more accurately, as we hope for. But in the case of drones, we were warned. Hollywood (or George Lucas) looked into its science-fiction crystal ball and projected that the camera would fuse with microcomputing and satellite technologies to form the foreboding symbol of our time: the unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone. Essentially, it’s a set of multiple eyes capable of staying up for hours, communicating back home and taking instruction via satellite. US army drones are controlled by teams of two (one pilot and one “sensor operator”), situated miles from conflict zones at a base in Nevada. He became fascinated by drones as early as 2003. His 2010 video Drone Vision exploits a glitch and security flaw in the way the images were transferred from the drones to the US-based pilot via unencrypted satellite uplinks. “We’re moving away from the notion of the soldier as the heroic character.

See english translation below; Voor bijna ieder doel, functie of gebrek is er tegenwoordig wel een apparaat of machine te koop. Desondanks – of misschien juist daardoor- zijn veel makers bezig met het ontwikkelen van eigen uitvindingen. De versmelting van internet met fysieke objecten inspireert het buro The Incredible Machine tot nieuwe producten: ‘TickToc’ is een herinterpretatie van een analoge klok die je persoonlijke Google agenda weergeeft.

Geschichte[Bearbeiten] 1998 initiierte die Firma Meso Digital Media Systems Design die Entwicklung der Software vvvv, die ursprünglich als firmeninterne Anwendung gedacht war. Eines der ersten Projekte, in denen die Software zum Einsatz kam, war die gemeinsam von Meso und 3deluxe realisierte Installation Cyberhelvetia auf der Expo 2002 in der Schweiz. Funktionsweise[Bearbeiten] vvvv läuft grundsätzlich in Echtzeit, Änderungen am „Programmcode“ werden direkt ausgeführt – vvvv kann somit in die Kategorie der Datenstromorientierten Programmiersprachen eingeordnet werden. Im Gegensatz zu herkömmlichen texturalen Programmiersprachen werden bei vvvv grafische Objekte, sog. Anwendungsgebiete[Bearbeiten] Analogien[Bearbeiten] Weblinks[Bearbeiten]
