Join Ian Haig for a walk and demonstration of Fleshify the World (Augmented Diseased Reality). The group will meet outside the main entrance to SFU, across from JJ Bean Coffee.
Augmented Reality (AR) technology is re-imagined as Augmented Diseased Reality. The work explores a media sphere that is increasingly cast as part of our bodies. Fleshify the World takes this idea to an extreme by fusing an iPad with human flesh in the form of silicon. If our technologies are extensions of our body, then what does it look like if those technologies share our disease? Fleshify the World makes this idea literal, taking the seductive, slick and tasteful design of the iPad into the realm of the visceral, bodily and monstrous.
