dLux Media Arts "Aurasma" Workshop for Teachers

This session will focus on using accessible technology to engage students at all levels in creative processes. In this workshop Tara Morelos and Dr Liz Bradshaw of dLux MediaArts (Sydney) will introduce us to "Aurasma", an augmented reality platform to construct virtual sculptures using content from your own smart phone or device.

augmented reality - a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.

Participants will experiment with this technology to construct layered images (Auras) from visual content available on their personal device, or in response to historical objects and artefacts from the TMAG Collection.

dLux MediaArts is one of Australia's key media arts organisation with over 30 years of experience in supporting artists working with emerging technologies. With an emphasis on making technology driven art practice accessible to everybody, dLux delivers educational workshops in art, ideas and technology to artists, arts workers, young people and gallery audiences.
