Spatial Art: An Eruption of the Digital into the Physical + Interview


  • Simona Lodi


This text analyzes the work of artists who use augmentation, information and immersion in specific contexts – public or private spaces – with or without authorization. Their goal is to create interventionist actions and collective experiences within an experimental augmented framework. These artists play on ambiguities in defining what reality is – how it is perceived, felt and detected. The aim of the analysis is to understand socio-cultural transformations in the fields of art and technology in social space, and what new forms of aggregation and participation have developed, providing an opportunity to reflect on new concepts of democracy that are emerging in our global media age.
