I think Lev Manovich has an essay about AR that talks about how the
information network has gone from outside reality to become more
integrated into day to day reality ala tablets and smart phones.
Recently I've been working with Kinect cameras that map x,y,z axis'
using infrared. Now the information layer has become part of physical
space. I'm also working with AR but incorporating it into a larger
discourse on art.
For example using paintings as AR markers to extend the discourse on
painting into the information layer or extending the sense of
movement, touch, body architectural space into the infomatic
discourse. I believe that Simon has a long time approach to these
Anyway, I think the screen has a teleology that comes from painting
to proscenium arch to screen. The hidden information layer is
infrared and 3D imaging.
