Salamanca Arts Centre Information Interface
The three-dimensional world that we live in – the buildings, the spaces – are an information-rich interface that can be augmented with interactive digital media – across a variety of platforms from the mobile screen to the huge stereoscopic3D screen. Buildings, and the activities within them, are essentially databases that can be visualised – to many ends.
This is a notional demonstrator that we are developing as part of the Geek-in-Residence Program (Australia Council) – a primitive example of a much more sophisticated geospatial AR and cultural history/presence concept.
A very first draft attempt at visualising the buildings of the Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart, Tasmania, during our Geek-in-Residence program.
Derived from hand-drawn architectural diagrams, the idea behind this is to develop a 3D spatial interface for the buildings using AR applications for touchscreen and mobile phones.
Looking promising – but much to be done.
