augmented (4)

In the summer of 2013, I invited several artists to freely explore the AR space and its art making potential. Conceptual and technical support was provided and the artists were given complete access to their own AR channel and virtual studio.

dance-tech is pleased to announce the launching of the first dance-tech Augmented Reality creative project developed by NY dancer and choreographer Adam H Weinert.


Adam created THE REACCESSION OF TED SHAWN as a digital installation in The Museum of Modern Art without the museum’s consent.

He "placed" a permanent installation of his recent performances at MoMA in the AR environment. Through the use of the AR app, visitors are able to view footage of his performances simply by using their smartphones or tablet to the museum galleries where he performed in October of 2013.

His project implicate the  uses of the mobile technology questioning notions and affordances of exhibition space, archive, participation, institutional legitimation, interfaces and mediation.

More about the project

From project website:

"By installing the re-performances of Ted Shawn's choreography inside the museum walls, Weinert strives to perform an act of “Reaccession”.  This perlocutionary flip, made possible by the use of AR and video documentation, trespasses on the museum and exposes aspects of its relation to its audience, to dance and to dance history usually unseen.  The Reaccession of Ted Shawn challenges notions of the archive and re-performance as understood by recent scholarship in performance studies and art history by way of digital, performative intervention and offers a new vector for displaying performance in museum spaces - one which honors the vision of the authors and transforms the museum into more than a cenotaphic display."

Here you can see some screenshots:

Panorama Aumentado |Augmented Panorama is a Augmented Reality Experience Lab @ Festival Panorama 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Panorama Aumentado creates a hidden media landscape that grows as the festival happens.

Use your smart phones to discover geolocated videos of performances and interviews with the dancetrchtvARapp on festival program, banners, posters, logos the facades of the theaters.

The lab explores the intersection of online video journalism and Augmented Reality technology, creating a mobile media experience during the festival. The lab works a hub to share with the community new ways of media production, distributions and interfacing. It explores potential of mobile augmented reality  technology to intervene and augment the festival  with digital content.

The audience uses smart phones or tablets to scan programs and posters of the festival  and theater facades to discover video layers with performance excepts, artists interviews and other contents created by a team of volunteers from the local community.




How does Panorama Aumentado work?

It uses a free Augmented Reality app of and it allows the user to discover video layers on printed material and building facades. It also allows the user to create their own AR geolocated content.

It combines an image recognition engine and geolocation.

The AR app is designed to be used mostly in the contexts of arts festivals and older events to augment printed programs and posters with video layers of the artists involved in the festivals and with video content created in the festivals by the team. It may also be used for some urban games and performances with the geolocation feature.

The AR app makes image and location a site for multimedia performance experimentation.

This video shows the installation running at the festival center (Largo das Artes, Rio de Janeiro), where the visitors change pieces of the printed program and scan them with an iPhone and iPad running the dancetechtvARapp connected to an LCD screen and discover the trailers of the pieces and interviews. The app then, recognizes the image and plays a video layer on it. All the images of the program and logos are augmented with video content. Combines social media journalism, interactive media and augmented reality technology.


Geolocated Videos on facades of Theaters and big posters:

I you are near of AR geolocated augmented reality content  you will see several icons on the bottom part of the viewer.

See screenshot  from app when you are close to the Teatro Joao Caetano. Tap on the icons to get more information about the AR location and the image hint.




Panorama Aumentado

The Lab/workshop

The project offers a workshop to explore social media video production and augmented reality. The lab participants video and edit using portable devices and an online tools to produce a collinear documentation of what happens at the theaters and other venues and its headquarters are the Center of the Festival. In generates a sustainable exchange from the festival and volunteers of the community.
