MUCH MORE INFO ABOUT THE MATERIALS PRESENTED IS HERE.
As I began to prepare for the events, I soon discovered a fantastic problem. Three huge AR events had very recently occurred:
- Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference ended on June 8.
-The biggest announcements in AR were made at the Augmented World Expo, which was from May 30 to June 1.
Because my presentations were meant to reflect the State of the Art in AR, I had to organize lot of information in a short period of time. Plus, the materials I had gathered previously had become out of date.
The good news is that nearly all of the materials presented were less than a year old, some just a few days old! The bad news is that in the rush, I had to de-prioritize student's work and ended up not showing any. With this post I remedy that, and am thankful to the teachers and students involved with the work below.(Any students, anywhere: I will be happy to post your AR-related work!)
First is the "home team", the Hong Kong Polytechnic University of Design. Dr. Ludovic Krundell helped secure these images, and he was a most helpful resource and source of welcome advice during my time at PolyU. His support, as well as the guidance of Gino Yu,
made my time here an unforgettable experience. OK; the work...

The following were kindly provided by Fabian Winkler, the Associate Professor of Visual and Performing Arts, at the Electronic and Time-Based Art Program of Purdue University. Professor Winkler's own work can be seen here.
The following presentations were developed within a short period: less than two weeks. They are about the relationship of the markers (image targets) and the AR content they activate.
