About AR and Art and the meaning of vision "through" (not "on") the  
screen, I would like to point out a very interesting experience: the  
Invisible Pavillion (Biennale - Venice 2011): http://www.theinvisiblepavilion.com/

 From the curatorial text by Simona Lodi:
"A word that is also a graphic mark signifying two meanings that are  
opposite though coexistent at the same time—the tangible and  
intangible, the visible and the invisible... The resulting experience  
is hallucinatory because it gives rise to a suspended sense of  
insight, which expands the boundaries of the world. A world understood  
here as a display surface, and as an extension of the exhibition space  
towards and infinite number of different planes of r/Reality."
