Friday Night Flicks: One Step Away

The role of computer technologies in our life is increasingly under discussion these days. It seems appropriate to check out how people are combining new technologies with the traditional idea of the book. Today’s flick features an experiment in combining the book form with virtual reality — an augmented book.

This work is an experimental project within the PhD program with the collaboration of the Athens School of Fine Arts, entitled “Scripture and Image, The Evolution Of The Substrate-. From The Space, To The Object, To The Paper, And The Return To The Contemporary Space Of Virtual Reality.” This research concerns the examination of the form of the elements of a book (words and images) and the substrate on which they are incorporated as a means of memory and storytelling. It develops through a comparative study of their evolution over time: from the manuscript book to typography and recently in digital media such as computer screen, digital tablet, smart phones, virtual and augmented reality.



If you are intrigued, you can learn more about the project this weekend by looking here, or watch more of Anna K. Meli’s book-related videos here.
