WHAT

+

PROBE is an exhibition featuring the undergraduate thesis work of the Jackson Studio. The projects each have a unique focus, but all are united in their ambition to re-frame the physical world as a place of augmented experience, in accord with aspects of contemporary culture that the architectural discipline has so far failed to adequately address. Each thesis is therefore framed as a challenge to existing practices, and an argument for and demonstration of a new approach to architecture.

WHY

+

The studio's general interest in architecture's nature as an immersive, augmented reality is reflected in the design of the exhibition itself: the content of each thesis project is presented as a series of interactive layers, and the physical infrastructure of the show provides the interface for exploring and interacting with these various layers of content.

HOW

+

OK, here's how to play:
The projected content (A) features multi-touch interactivity, just like your smartphone. Generally, you should hover just above the content to move it, tap to select it, and pull your hand sharply away to deselect. A small indicator circle will appear as a cursor when your hand is close enough to make a selection, and will disappear upon deselection. Try moving these palettes around and opening and closing them to get a feel for it. Meanwhile, the table device (B) features an augmented reality software that reveals extra content in the projection (A) and models [C]. Try pointing at the logo (D) and see what happens!
