breaking narrative but retaining movement

Augmented Reality in Art: Aesthetics and Material for Expression


If video art of the 70’s was appropriately placed to deal with issues of surveillance, celebrity, and mediation coming out the tradition of pop art, then what is AR art poised to express? We could begin by saying it is a state of post- mediation. We are no longer seeking to grapple with mediation, but have embodied it, and are, instead, grappling with our relationship to the interface and machine. And, if we have succeeded in creating an acinema—breaking narrative but retaining movement—then what are the new ideological limits of the new apparatus.

G.A. Rhodes (2008)
