Forever ! – The Ball

My artistic field is the hybrid reality which arises when the urgency
of the real space is combined with the unbounded possibilities and
opportunities of the virtual domain. I work as an independent artists,
bypassing curators with self organised augmented reality shows in
hi-art domains such as the MoMA, but in a next project I’m
infiltrating into mass culture too: football.

Title: “SoccAR”, 2011, 2’19
The football stadium provides the perfect setting for massive
multi-player games. The focus of the audience is directed towards a
shared playing field. The players on the field act as perfect
rendering engines for sudden and unexpected moves for game characters.
Based on a football-player-tracing-systems developed by V2, a unique
new range of hybrid reality games is now possible. This video
introduces the concept of extending the football game with a layar of
arcade or artistic aesthetic gaming experiences.
