Augmented Space Agency "Transsystemic Signals"
Transsystemic Signals tracks aspects of the natural environment and human nature through their transmediated interconnection through the electromagnetic signals emitted by the city spontaneous vegetation and spread to the broad territory of the digital medium.
Transsystemic Signals is an interactive AR art installation that involves documenting spontaneous vegetation found in the city’s architectural ruins, through an innovative and creative documentation methodology that uses technologies such as biofeedback and photogrammetry.
Augmented Space Agency are explorers of the frontiers found at the convergence of physical and virtual spaces, they are designers of future experiences, architects of immersive spaces and developers of creative innovation.
Their activity focuses on new media arts and XR technologies (AR, VR, MR), capable of sustaining a wide range of media solutions, digitally augmented, immersive and interactive experiences. Their mission is to explore the rea-virtual continuum, in search of technological innovation and new media formats that can contribute to the development of new better forms of experiential communication and visualization.
The immersive augmented reality experience - Transsystemic Signals is available for free to the public through the "Augmented Space Agency" mobile app on the App Store and Play Store (iOS / Android).
The AR experience has two formats:
+ The experience accessible to the general public through the "Augmented Space Agency" application
+ The AR immersive experience developed especially for the white box space that was on view on September 19 at 6 p.m. at WASP Working Art Space and Production
The project documented the architectural spaces in an advanced stage of degradation (ruin). Transsystemic Signal was documented through different technological methods:
+ 3D scanning (Photogrammetry) was used to document and digitize the architectural space. The raw material was recomposed in a virtual AR scenography by Ciprian Făcăeru.
+ BioFeedback – wad used to document the electromagnetic signals taken from the spontaneous vegetation present on site, which were later translated into sound by Andrei Raicu.
+ Creative programming - a process that defined the structure of the digital AR project and experimental forms of interaction between the public and the virtual elements sound and 3D image. Creative process made by Florin Dumitru.
The raw material obtained in the documentation stage was used in creating a virtual audio-visual scenography in augmented reality.
