Augmented Surfaces : Mapping

Map/Territory from timo on Vimeo.

For some time now I have been thinking about the relationship between technology and everyday surfaces encountered in cities. I have been particularly interested in how our relationship to these surfaces can change as walls, floors and ceilings, things that were once boundaries, become portals to information and essentially no longer existing as pure boundaries. These surfaces take on a hybrid reality as the phsycial infrastructure of the urban fabric is augmented. While not elaborating further I thought it interesting when I stumbled upon this video exhibiting a crude exploration of this idea. It was worth sharing. Enjoy.
