Immersive technologies (especially VR) propose new means of displacing our bodies through technology, and photogrammetry recreates these flesh and object bodies for virtual space. SURFACE TENSION is a year-long research project uses diverse design approaches to explore how scanning, photogrammetry, and touchscreen interactions mediate our relationship between bodies and interfaces.
This design project takes multiple experimental approaches to answering these initial queries:
- What are the affordances of immersion/immersing in current virtual, mixed, and augmented realities?
- In what ways are we already immersed in the merging of virtual/physical worlds?
Engaging with provisional realities cedes the human voice in favor of predictive algorithms. Will this improve our relationships, or produce an unacceptable strain on our…
