Co-designing Augmented Reality apps with Community participants
CAL Affective Digital Presence Series presents Jane Prophet
Media theorists Maria Engberg and Jay Bolter have argued that Augmented Reality (AR) is especially engaging as it is more physically engaging, more affective, than other forms of mediated experience. However, there are barriers to accessing AR and disparities between the teams designing AR and the people using the apps. Jane will discuss three AR projects she has led/is leading that are co-designed in collaborative learning processes with community participants. She will present these projects as case studies to discuss a range of issues such as racial and gender disparities, the role of art in healing, and the opportunities - and pitfalls - for turning to AR at a time when we are denied human to human touch.
* A Zoom link will be sent out nearer to the time to registered attendees only.
