Join us to hear Grégory Chatonsky and Goliath Dyèvre, members of Augment Institute present a summary of their research during their three month stay at Colab on the Ataata residency programme. Their research creation project Augment Institute investigates imagining a design and art form of augmented reality. AR is not limited to the screen, it also helps to produce new shapes linked to the imagination of the digital.

A pioneer of net art, Chatonsky founded the Incident.net net art platform in 1994. Chatonsky works on the relationship between existence and technology, exploring the underlying structures of everyday technology to create variable and endless fictions. His work often deals with the technological catastrophes facing our culture, previous works have questioned the difference between public and private, real and virtual, fluid and constant, through works that trouble or disorient viewers.
