During this studio project, the six MAS students explored the potential of Augmented Reality. They wanted to question what devices could be used, what could be recognised and what feedback could be given. Maintaining the idea that we will add a digital layer to the analogue world, they asked the questions; What can AR tell us? What can AR make us feel? How can AR change our understanding of the world? We named the project Augmented Augmented Reality and each of us six students followed our own paths of exploration, eventually resulting in six diverse projects.
