Institutional presentation / The Mixed and Augmented Reality Art Organisation: An Overview of Ten Years Since Our Launch at ISEA 2013￼
- Abstract: This presentation will provide an overview of the previous ten years of operation for martart.org, or The Mixed and Augmented Reality Art Organisation, as we were originally launched as, as ISEA Sydney in 2013. Since our launch by the myself, Paul Thomas and Ross Harley marart.org has seen several conceptual transitions and a sound body of outputs, including exhibitions and symposiums in Adelaide, Munich, London, Fukuoka, Merida and Hertfordshire, exhibiting an evolving format that has progressed from defining augmentation and materiality through interface, body and archival politics and approaches, to fashion, privacy, ownership and identity, all in the context of mixed reality discourse. This presentation will showcase these outcomes and discuss how the organization has developed, our current status quo and future directions.
- Biography: This is an open group for researchers dealing with mixed reality art focusing on augmentation aesthetics. It has a specific (conceptual) focus on convergent realities as art mediums and the theoretical discourses that surround this field.
Founded in 2013 and launched at ISEA Sydney, we are the world’s first Arts organistaion dedicated to Arts-based research and practice that uses the aesthetics of augmentation to explore and engage with the world and interface the public with the prominent issues of our time.
Most recently we have positioned our focus on the Augmentation of Ecological Aesthetics for the Post-Anthropocenic Era.
