Investigating metaphor-based user interfaces in the design of responsive environments. The first iteration of this series is augment_me to be followed-up by complete_me and data_shadow. A large part of the image collection is already available flickr augment_me was exhibited at Artspace, Sydney and review in the V94 RealTime Arts Magazine plus a paper delivered at ISEA 2011
In augment_me, the individual images are everyday - banal in some instances, beautiful in others. A building, a lover, graffiti, a dirty street, flowers, drunk friends, a fountain, my unmade bed, a painting, a wake – they are fragments, moments, within an identity, a life which is not fixed nor defined by a singular, fixed thing but is shifting and ever changing.
augment_me was made possible by the generous support of the Visual Arts & Crafts Board and the Music Board of the Australia Council.
