Designing the Future of Augmented Reality

@ VOL 31 ON DEC 04, 2014

Augmented Reality (AR) is typically defined as a layering of digital information over the physical world as experienced through a smartphone, tablet, or digital eyewear. AR is quickly advancing into a new phase of contextually rich personalized experiences that combine sensors, wearable computing, big data, machine-learning, and artificial intelligence. This second wave of AR will surpass novelty and extend our human capacities to better understand and experience our world in new meaningful ways. AR is no longer about technology, it’s about living in the real world and creating meaningful experiences that are human-centred. How do we want to live in and with AR, and how will it shape our lives?

Seeing with Rhizomes

@ VOL 26 ON JUN 18, 2018

I’m a student and teacher of design. I believe that the best, most considerate design solutions are realized through collaboration (sometimes with with a side of punk rock?) and through making connections that are not always intuitive. Collaboration, besides building community and being fun, also increases the odds of finding these unintuitive solutions. There are chance opportunities that occur all the time all around us that hold the potential to catalyze further moments of creative breakthroughs. We often miss them. How can we miss less of them? Maybe this is about synchronicity. As Carl Jung once said, Synchronicity is an ever-present reality for those who have the eyes to see it. Rhizomes and theories behind rhizomatic learning inspire me to try and seek out opportunities in less obvious places.
