Poetic AR


Poetic AR was a project developed in collaboration with Imagination of Things, a play studio based in Amsterdam. It aim was to investigate the creative connections between poetry and augmented reality and experiment with its overlapping possibilities.

“We approach augmented reality as a creative tool that we can fill with play and poetics. To create prompts that challenge what our phone camera can see and breathe meaningful moments into overwhelming social media platforms.” V.Freire

EXPERIENCE 1

An AR experience with time, poetry and technology. The loading moment is present in our lives as a gatekepper and often an inconvenient small bump when moving on in our digital errands.

What if these moments could be something else?

EXPERIENCE 2

Our world is now awash in an unpredecedented volume of data, althoug our brains haven’t evolved to be able to process it all, however we continue to produce even more data every second. Esspecially through pictures.

54,400 photos are taken every second, 196 million per hour, 4.7 billion per day, 32.9 billion per week, 143 billion per month, and 1.72 trillion per year.

This AR experience proposes a reflection on this collective action and its impact on each of us.

What is it that we are really capturing in these photos?
