DAY for NIGHT: The Augmented City
DAY for NIGHT Exhibition @ ARTPRIZE 9
The AUGMENTED CITY is made up of multiple STORY MARKERS, which are also associated with the DAY for NIGHT narrative and located throughout the city of Grand Rapids.
Some of these markers are site-specific to the location, consisting of landmarks, architectural structures and designs such as the mural found across from Fed Galleries or the Blue Bridge. Others consist of non-site-specific elements such as street signs and can be triggered anywhere throughout the city.
The Conversation: Ritual Gestures
The AUGMENTED STORY is made up of twenty-three interactive and augmented STORY FRAMES, which are on exhibit at the FED GALLERIES (KCAD), Grand Rapids, Michigan from August 29 to October 15, 2017 and as part of ARTPRIZE 9 (Vote Code: 65564).
The act of observing or interacting via technological devices generates repetitive gestures. We use these gestures to access our technological devices. Over time, these gestures become recognizable actions intertwined with our personal, social and cultural identity. They become part of our everyday rituals.
