TransVision: Exploring the States of the Visual Field in the Age of Extreme Augmentation

EasyChair Preprint no. 1066

6 pagesDate: May 30, 2019


Human perception has long been influenced by technologi-cal breakthroughs. An intimate mediation of technology lies in between our direct perceptions and the environment we perceive. Through three extreme ideal types of perceptual machines, this project defamiliarizes and questions the ha-bitual ways in which we interpret, operate, and understand the visual world intervened by digital media. The three ma-chines create: Hyper-sensitive vision – a speculation on so-cial media’s amplification effect and our filtered communi-cation landscape. Hyper-focused vision – an analogue ver-sion of the searching behavior on the Internet. Hyper-commoditized vision – monetized vision that meditates on the omnipresent advertisement targeted all over our visual field. The site of intervention is the visual field in a techno-logically augmented society. All the three machines have both internal state and external signal.

Keyphrases: Augmented Reality, Soft Robotics, speculative design, Tactile Art, vision, wearable
