A mixed reality app that augments Vinyl LPs.


Continuing with Alex Fast on our mixed reality quest to augment LPs, we will pursue new features not yet explored in our midterm and refine things like API integration and video surfaces that are already key ingredients.

We have discussed putting this project into the ITP Winter Show, presented as a sort of AR record store pop-up shop, so we'll need to augment a handful of records. So we'll add to the list of albums and pursue refining the Radiohead and Bowie records that we began with.

Big New Things: integrated 3D objects to provide contextual information in more spatial ways, as well as implement some element of the Google Resonance spatial audio SDK.

An immersive 24-hour web documentary about a bodega in Queens, NY.<br />


Bodega is a 24-hour web documentary that captures the everyday interactions and transactions of a small neighborhood business. As viewers settle into the real-time audio soundscape of the store, 3D models of purchased items rotate on screen. Bodega is a meditation on commerce, labor, and the relationships between locals in a changing neighborhood.
For the Winter Show, we’d like to present Bodega as a multimedia installation. The project will be projected on the wall, with headphones available for individual viewers. A table will display an array of the goods that were purchased during filming and scanned into the project.
