Spatial Narratives in Art



The text analyzes the work of artists who use augmentation, information and immersion in specific contexts—public or private spaces. The aim of the analysis is to understand socio-cultural transformations in the fields of art and technology in social space and what new forms of aggregation and participation have developed, providing an opportunity to reflect on new concepts of democracy that are emerging in our global media age. The question underlying the study is how do artists who use augmentation, information and immersion give new meaning to the concept of public space, changing the proprietary boundaries of that space and concept of what it is to perceive reality.
