Paper title: Living Archives: Artistic research approaches to mixed-reality curating
Temi Odumosu, Maria Engberg and Susan Kozel will be presenting some of Living Archives approaches to mixed reality curating, at the Curatorial Challenges conference, organised by the Research Network for Studies in the Curatorial, at Copenhagen University. The group paper will explore recent prototyping using Augmented Reality (AR) software on iOS handheld devices, testing possibilities for the co-production of shared public memories. The paper will describe a methodological shift from Augmented Reality (AR) to Mixed Reality (MR) by focussing on two experimental projects currently in progress, where AR has been integrated with performance and other curatorial strategies: “Affexity: Passages and Tunnels” exploring layers of choreography in various urban settings; and “Bitter and Sweet” revealing colonial memories embedded in the Vestindisk Pakhus in Copenhagen.
