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.
