Recently, students from the Royal Academy of Art, Amsterdam University and The Hague University of Applied Sciences took part in the project CSI Victory Boogie Woogie. In this highly collaborative project, institutes such as The Netherlands Study Centre for Technology Trends (Stichting Toekomstbeeld der Techniek), Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, NEST, Cultural Heritage Agency (Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed) and the Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (Stichting Behoud Moderne Kunst) are also involved.

The AR Lab's fourth and last Pop-Up Gallery of the current study year took place on 23 May 2013. Interactive Media Design in Wonderland was a great succes! Students were supervised by lecturers Casper Koomen and Nick van 't End, who helped them to create very diverse, interactive and autonomous art pieces.
You are hereby cordially invited to come and have a look at the AR Lab's fourth Pop-Up Gallery on Thursday 23 May 2013. We open directly after the Studium Generale lectures given by Cox & Grusenmeyer and Annelein Pompe, in the Bleijenburg hall at the Academy.
Different elements of a multilayered photograph projected on a wall can be displayed or hidden using an interface made of tangible RFID-tagged objects and a table with an embedded RFID reader. But instead of simply "taking" pictures of these objects and presenting them on screen in a realistic way, the system projects their unexpected and sometimes surprising, symbolic interpretations in form of an imaginative, associative photomontage.
