The presentation of the project “IsoThread” at the Rocks in Sydney this November will invite visitors to sample an Augmented Reality program which plays on the body’s capacity to refigure from its usual corporeal sense of movement and navigation in space. The user will be immersed in an augmented environment in which she has to reconcile her position and orientation between the trans-spatiality of the physical and the virtual. In this expanded environment there is no definitive going forward, backward, left or right.

Tyng Shiuh Yap is a PhD Candidate at the School of Media Art, COFA-UNSW. View her website for now info.
