KKH KFoU funded Research project Sculpting with SARA (Spatial Augmented Reality) is finalized after 2 years of development. In the project Martin Christensen and Martin Eklund has explored how spatial augmented reality can assist sculpting in the physical space based on a digital 3D-model. As a result of their findings they propose a setup of software and hardware as well as methods to use these (SARA), that can visually guide an artist in the work of manual transfer of digital to physical three-dimensional form. Henrik Ekesiöö has been an active collaborator and contributed a lot to the development of the physical setup and practical testing of software.
June 2021 Exhibition: Konst i ån
Martin Christensen participates in publicly presented group exhibition Konst i ån in Norrtälje city. Martin presents a work with the title Intergalaktisk rymdå (Intergalactic Space River). In the work, The Norrtälje river is transferred to an intergalactic scale. A new constellation of galaxies has been defined based on the shape of the river's water volume. A site-specific sign with associated web page forms a portal to understanding and reflection on the work's theme.
