If you are wondering what future might bring. This reminds me a little of Terminator… It is not about another virtual reality, just about looking at everything that surrounds us through a screen with additional information, more info than a normal mind can acknowledge, process or remember, a mixture of product consumerism and architectural spacing. Like we had a computer on board. With lots of commercials and ads.
And not for killing, but for daily “branded” living.
The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it.A film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture, part of a larger project about the social and architectural consequences of new media and augmented reality.
