Interactive Installation
Slovenia, 2014

A meeting of two worlds - technology and art. Not long ago, mobile phones were a rarity, and the internet was still in its infancy stages. Even two decades ago, the technology we now carry in our pockets was bordering on science fiction. In the initial stages of online networking, online interactions with other users and systems was considered artificial, almost unreal. So the acronym "IRL" was born, which stands for "In Real Life". Today, the line between "IRL" and the virtual world has become blurred.

What is real? Are we to rely on our own eyes and the interpretation (of input information) processed by our brains?

Project visuAR uses technology to place a virtual object in "real" space, augmenting reality with the "unreal". Using a phone or tablet computer, the user can conjure up a few moments of augmented reality.
