Resume of the tutorial with Jonathan
Date: December 1st. 2017
Topic: Feedback from Unit 1, and whats next.
We talked about my consideration for the final project. Multiple screens, sound and movements are still on my mind. I’m started researching Augmented Reality (AR). Some years ago I saw an artist (Camille Scherrer) presenting an AR-project at Resonate in Belgrade (2013), it has been on my mind since then because of its simplicity and focuses on illustration.
We talked about technology; the possibility with new stuff and the value of cooperation with other people.
There is a lot of clever technical stuff going on according to AR, but a lot of it is empty there is a need for depth of content; a poetic level.
Jonathan mentioned that I have the potential here to do, with the depth of thinking behind my work, that I got the potential to do something interesting, particularly around AR. It is not about the technology but the content. He reminded me that I got a whole banc of material already and that I can create more sound and images.
We talked about my subject; dreams and surrealism fit well with the idea of an extra level of the reality like AR where other stuff is going on at the same time in the same space.
The obvious thing about AR is an installation where someone uses a kind of device like an iPhone, but there could be other ways of using AR, which I have to look at like if people can move them self physically around in a space, turning around and questioning what nature AR might look like. Jonathan encourages me to go and play with it to push it.
I got such a positive feedback from this tutorial and from Unit 1, I should be pleased, and I am pleased (I am too shy to write all superlatives) – I learned a lot about myself during Unit 1.
My statement for Unit 2:
· More practice
· Take risks
· Make documentation on my blog.
What to do now:
· Investigating AR in theory and praxis
· Continue making dream images
· Stil researching the subject dreams in art and as a human experience.
