Opening an augmented reality portal in the middle of Manhattan.
Traditionally, we think of our physical world and the digital world as separate spaces. But what if the two could coexist? Or, even better— if your smartphone enabled you to cross between them?
transgression: something that breaks expectations, limitations, restrictions, conventions, conceptions, beliefs, or the status quo.
For my “transgression” final in MTEC 2120: Interactive Media Systems Design, I made an augmented reality app where you can place a portal in front of you and actually walk through it (!!) into a virtual forest. Once you’re inside, the audio shifts from distant & muffled to full volume, and you can tilt your phone to look around & continue walking to explore the scene. You can even turn around & go back through the portal when you’re done, to return to the real world. :)
