Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (diminished or enhanced) by a computer.
Our workshop proposes investigating the integration of AR concepts into architecture and arts as a non-intrusive experimental medium. Currently, there is a tendency to try and bridge the gap between our physical world and the virtual, data-driven world. Augmentation is one solution that can be tested and implemented where a link is formed between the physical world and the virtual one. These kind of applications can be used as social media and community tools to facilitate interaction between participants and be expanded as a digital avatar connected to the physical world.
Our goal is to explore various concepts and approaches regarding augmented reality and, together with our students, find more interesting and engaging ways to interact with the city of Valletta and its community. As a team, we will not provide recipes, but provide starting points for creating original digital content and shaping a way of thinking responsive to the new digital paradigm.
