Art & Science Node Berlin presents a unique way to explore immersive, interactive art projects with a free mobile application using Augmented Reality technology. Understanding of the world as a multi-faceted environment gave rise to the concept of a root-like, nonhierarchical, 3D interface that guides the viewer inside the artworks. It serves as an introduction into the world of inter-connections and creativity embracing artistic research & practice, scientific discovery and technological progress.
Available on Google Play & App Store
ART & SCIENCE NODE app constitutes the meeting ground between art and innovation in science and technology, providing a wide survey of artworks created by artists inspired by scientific research and collaborating with scientists in the field of life sciences and biotechnology. The AR projects transfer the multitude of topics derived from biological inspirations, social issues, global concerns and speculative reflections on the human-made systems onto multimedia narratives.
Presentation in an augmented reality environment lets the viewer experience the artworks in the self-chosen surroundings, without the enclosure within the walls of museums and galleries. Visit a park, a meadow or a busy city street (and many more) and explore the variety of the artworks outside.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. Download and install the free ART & SCIENCE NODE application from Google Play/ App Store. It is best to make the download when using Wi-Fi internet connection.
2. When using the app – please remember to stay aware of your surroundings!
3. Open the application. Before going in AR mode, check the Tutorial in the Menu to learn how to fully enjoy the experience’s designed functionalities.
4. After entering the AR mode, scan the horizontal surfaces and click on the chosen marker’s position to place the root-like interface.
