Dear Friends,

I am delighted to be in the following augmented reality exhibits at:

ISEA2011 Istanbul
As official parallel programs to the ISTANBUL BIENNIAL

"INVISIBLE ISTANBUL" AR intervention in the Istanbul Biennial
(In collaboration with PATTU Istanbul)

  "Invisible Istanbul" is the first Augmented Reality (AR) Intervention 
into the Istanbul Biennial, using GPS positioning to place virtual 
artworks within the real physical space of Istanbul and the Biennial, 
creating surrealistic and poetic juxtapositions between real and virtual 
within the context of the hidden urban dynamics of Istanbul.

"NOT THERE", Kasa Gallery, Sabanci U. Karakoy Comm. Center

  "Not There" is an exhibition of AR artworks from the Manifest.AR 
Venice Biennial 2011 AR Intervention still viewable at the Venice 
Biennial. The exhibition is a partnership with the exhibit „Not Here,“ 
taking place at the Samek Art Gallery, Bucknell University, Lewisburg 
PA/USA, and with the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (Leonardo/ISAST).
