Art and Expression

In the 1990s Augmented Reality as a technology was largely limited to the laboratory. In recent years, however, the increasing popularity and capabilities of smart phones and tablets have provided a new broad platform for certain kinds of AR applications and in the process have transformed AR (and location-based MR) into a significant new medium of expression. There is now a growing body of AR art by professionals within the (digital) art community; there are also opportunities for much larger group of everyday users to create AR applications for personal expression (as part of the world of remix and social media). Students and faculty members in the AEL are exploring both these avenues: AR as art and AR as personal expression.
