The course continues the conceptual computational framework set out in the autumn by looking at Augmented Reality (AR) as another potential site of spatial investigation using real-time video-based input/output. This term, in addition to using projection-mapping techniques, students would continue to explore the use of Augmented Reality via the Smartphone/Web-cam as the main hardware and Processing/Java as the main scripting software. The dynamic mapping between the virtually generated and physically projected geometries would be developed to complement the students’ ongoing unit projects’ digital and physical models. These overlaid 3D spatial data would be further translated as robust geometries implementable in other CAD packages (e.g. Rhino, Maya…etc.). A recorded video of the interactive process and a series of geometrical output illustrating provocative augmented spaces will serve as the final documented submission.
