“I see Your rainbow panorama as an orientation tool. Dividing Aarhus into colour zones, it has the qualities of a lighthouse: it draws attention not only to itself, but also to your physical location in Aarhus. For people living in the city and moving through the different times of day, the work becomes a compass in time and space.” – Olafur Eliasson

3) Visual Effects in Space: Felice Varini
Topic A. Discuss when to reveal the technology vs make the technology invisible (e.g. ubiquitous computing is about integrating the technology into the real world seamlessly. Are there times when we have to reveal the infrastructure of a technology for more affordance? – Skype call control hidden in full screen video). Topic B. Compare private vs shared experience (e.g. AR digital assets, listening to music, etc)
