Panorama Aumentado: A dance-tech.tv Augmented Reality Experience Lab @ FestivalPanorama 2012*
The installation/lab explores the intersection of online video journalism and Augmented Reality technology, creating a mobile media experience during the festival.
The audience uses smart phones or tablets to scan programs and posters of the festival to discover video layers with performance excepts, artists interviews and other contents created by a team of students. The lab films and edits in real time what happens at the theaters and other venues and its headquarters are the Center of the Festival.
Panorama Aumentado creates a hidden media landscape that grows as the festival happens.
Panorama Aumentado was conceived by Marlon Barrios Solano as a collaboration between dance-tech.tv and Festival Panorama 2012.
Thanks to ACCAD – The Advanced Computer Center for Arts and Design from the Ohio State University (USA) and DanceDigitalUK.
The dancetechtvARapp is powered by Aurasma (UK)
