project description ‘Ungravity’
Through the use of geosemiotics delivered via mobile devices, this project aims to enrich urban culture by creating awareness of the real time processes that shape our understanding [and therefore interaction] within both the built environment, or the world of atoms; and the ethereal world of bytes through a sense of mixed reality which builds a new layer of experience, as stated in the theoretical framework of this event, ‘will enable confrontation of different groups in public space and provide heterotopic interpretations of the city.’
