When SITE was invited to participate in this augmented reality show, we took the opportunity to learn and develop skills with this new technology. Attempting to push the boundary of space with these layers of information which is neither physicality or fantasy, our ideas shifted between conscious and unconscious thought. Bridging this gap between reality and dream, we pushed the notion of a simple question: What is on the other side of the world?
With research, we found the study of antipode maps, points on the globe that are exact opposites of each other. Using this, we found the OMI site to be sharing a line in space with the Indian Ocean. With this we crafted the story of a view through the earth, making the viewers perception of this space globally connected.
