Octahedron | 2012 | documentation of an augmented reality intervention at White Sands, New Mexico, US.
Octahedron is a collaborative project with designer Steve Pacheco. The work is an Augmented Reality (AR) art intervention that creates an interplay between dimensions of the visible and invisible. The project is a series of layers containing virtual objects that are geo-positioned within the landscape of White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. AR technology utilizes a special browser on smartphones and tablets that allows the device to “see” previously invisible digital layers. The experience is similar to looking through a magic window that conjures up additional, floating objects within a space. The aim is to peel back the veil between the visible and invisible, exploring how a mediating digital technology can do the same.
