AR Lab nominated for a RAAK-Pro Award

For the second year in a row, one of the AR Lab’s projects – Smart Replicas this time – was nominated for a RAAK-Pro Award! This ceremony was held on 21 November 2013 and is part of Stichting Innovatie Alliantie (SIA) annual conference. Each year, prizes are awarded to those projects that take knowledge circulation, knowledge advancement, projects’ results and sustainable innovation to heart.

AR Lab nominated for RAAK-Pro award 2013

We are very proud to announce that we are nominated for a RAAK-Pro award 2013 for our highly collaborative (Studio Maaike Roozenburg, TU-Delft, KABK students from the Graphic Design department, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen) Smart Replicas project! With this project, our aim is to reuse historical objects by 3D-printing them and enriching them with innovative techniques such as AR. KABK Students, all the while, learn how to adopt new techniques to further their artistic design research.

Smart Replicas project: Design Column #4 The Circle Is Round

Design Column #4 The Circle Is Round features four stories that provide a counterweight to the current tendency towards withdrawal and defence. In different ways the projects show that thinking in terms of boundaries and linear developments is by no means always relevant. When doors appear to close, opportunities arise elsewhere. The ‘plastic soup’ in the ocean is not bound by national borders. Newer and bigger is not always better. Growth is cyclical; the circle is round.

1st Pop-Up Gallery: Graphic Design

The AR Lab and the research department Innovative Visualisation Techniques of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague will organise a series of Pop-Up Galleries and lectures together with the lecture programme Studium Generale, that investigate how Augmented Reality can be used by artists. The first Pop-Up Gallery will take place on Thursday 15 November 2012 and opens at 17:00 hrs in the rooms around the Auditorium of the Academy. Students of the Graphic Design Department will show their work and graphic designer Niels Schräder and AR-artist Sander Veenhof will give lectures.
