Augmented Reality applications allow us to place people and objects into our immediate environment, whether that is our lounge-room, a station or a bar. What does the intimacy and portability of these experiences provide that VR does not? How will this change the nature of documentary and provide us with rich cultural experiences? We hear from Crossover Labs and Quicksand, creating Bas Kar Busker, an AR musical mash-up based on Indian folk dance, and Canada’s Dpt., who’s The Enemy brings the protagonists of global conflict right into your home. Also, Lava Lab will speak about their social and communal AR storytelling experiences, like the first virtual festival in Amsterdam."
