Augmented Reality Art: From an Emerging Technology to a Novel Creative Medium

I have contributed a chapter to this book with the following title:

“Living and Acting in Augmented Words: How to Be Your Own Robot?”


The AR user experience is currently shifting from passive viewing to active engagement. Augmented reality wearables are going to be as common as smartphones are today. In a 24/7 augmented reality world, we risk becoming empowered and controlled by efficiency-focused algorithms. How to be your own robot is going to be the main challenge. In the near future, there is not just an opportunity for art to manifest itself in new ways, but there is also an urgency for that to happen. This chapter describes this shift with references to some of author’s own projects to illustrate the various ways in which AR art can manifest itself.
