In this workshop facilitated by Zeynep Abes, participants will learn how to create mobile AR installations based on their body's pose and joint position as triggers. We will be using Lens Studio to publish and share our AR creations around the world on SnapChat.

The goal of this workshop is to explore how AR can lead to artworks that enable an embodied practice within immersive media. Technology has certainly blurred the lines between our reality and the digital realm, can AR take this even further and transform our sense of place and how we share art? In a time where we can't experience most artwork in traditional spaces like galleries and museums, can AR reimagine the relationship between art and space and bring it into context within our own homes? The Embodied AR workshop invites students to rethink our personal devices as tools to challenge our traditional understanding of art exhibition and the body’s relationship with technology.
