Co Teaching w Jeremy Bailey!

I'm co teaching the Mobile Augmented Reality Studio grad class at NYU with Jeremy Bailey this fall semester! Take it if you can....


This course examines the affect of augmented reality [AR] on our bodies. Augmented reality is changing the way we understand our world in relationship to software by overlaying our physical reality with real-time, interactive digital experiences. Augmented reality has traditionally focused on the ways in which software might adapt our physical environment but this class will focus on how it affects our bodies – our behaviours and our identities. The body will be examined as both a software interface and a mutable object, capable of taking on new forms and capabilities. Students will gain a strong understanding of both the theory and technology necessary to create innovative experiences that push our collective understanding of the body as software.
