Draping Interfaces is an immersive physical/virtual installation that investigates the worlds that can appear when we mask or drape the physical with the virtual. How do images change when we zoom in and adjust our focus? What happens when we set the camera in a particular position?
For the duration of Ars Electronica/Kepler’s Gardens, the LCF installation will comprise a small number of miniature 50cm2 rooms, each with a multidirectional camera installed. The audience will be asked to remotely explore these rooms by moving the cameras around. Each room will appear magnified in a manner that takes influence from early cinema special effects animation. The remote virtual experience will use augmented reality to enhance the view, which will be submerged in spectacular visuals and engaging narrative.
Live sessions Daily live stream that will run for an hour. During the hour of streaming different events will take place which will only be announced on the day. Many visitors can log in at once and will be able to switch cameras and views to experience different aspects of the space. The sessions are also meant as Q/A for people to ask questions about the Draping Interfaces project and the Digital Anthropology Labs.
