Augmented Reality

Our masters lecturer Mike, presented his project to us today of what he had undertaken during his MA, however this was 10 years ago it was still amazing to see and quite surprising to see what he had achieved throughout the duration of the two years. You could say he clearly got the most out of his studies.
We also got to look at some more modern examples of augmented reality and wear some geeky science fiction looking glasses, so this evening’s seminar was really quite fun and got me thinking more about my practice.

The seminar also reminded me back to exactly why I wanted to do a Masters in the first place. I want to of course explore the whole ‘design journey’, however in terms of what I want to achieve out of doing this Masters, and something I look at more as a ‘goal’ rather than letting this dominate my chosen investigation subject, is working more digitally.

I would usually stay well clear of this, being not very tech savvy when it comes to creating things digitally; however this is a definite area I want to explore upon through my research processes. The future is digital, and it has been proven that technology develops  every two years, so I really would not want to limit myself, and the fact that I find it much more fascinating.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              As part of my investigation, I want to explore perception, audience engagement and communication, so the session really got me thinking practically about the processes and how I could work to find explore this area.
