Currently on “display” at STRIJP-S in Eindhoven, the Netherlands until the end of this year: 4D GRAFFITI INVASIONS by AUJIK.

4D Graffiti Invasions is an experience/exhibition which combines  the post-industrial  environment of the Strijp-S area (formerly a Philips Electronics plant) in Eindhoven, with augmented reality (AR) “graffiti” projected onto the streets and buildings. While walking on Strijp-S, you experience a virtual layer on top of the physical environment through your smartphone. Graffiti in augmented reality (AR) can pop up anywhere on your smartphone and then disappear again. This graffiti is not a frozen image in AR, but  consists of abstract animations:

This is how it works. To be able to experience the AR graffiti you must first download the free 4D Graffiti Invasions app  from the Google Play Store (Android) or the App Store (iOS).  The app shows the location of the 4D artworks at Strijp-S. If you walk over to a site, there is sticker on the ground, which you need to scan to experience the AR graffiti piece of that particular site on your smartphone.

AUJIK is an artistic concept initiated and maintained by the Swedish artist Stefan Larsson, who is currently based in Japan. Stefan Larsson is fascinated about the idea that everything, no matter how synthetic it seems, is nature. Everything derives from nature even though we sometimes perceive it otherwise. To extend this idea he gave it an animistic character influenced by Shinto and various pagan beliefs in his AUJIK concept. AUJIK  is modelled to resemble a fictive esoteric cult. Its themes are artificial intelligence, nature, technology, perception, future speculation, neuroscience and architecture.

In AUJIK he divides nature it into Primitive (vegetation, soil, humans/animals etc.) and Refined (AI, robotic, nano-technology etc.) and creates artefacts that are crossbreeds of these nature types. The central idea of these artefacts is that everything, even the most artificial things, have consciousness and a soul. Although it can only be experienced on the tiny screen of a smartphone, the results of this concept are quite stunning as you can see in the video above. Want to experience the works of AUJIK at Strijp-S yourself? Start your tour at the AUJIK Homebase at Mu artspace. Here you will find the information about the app and all the locations of the AR works.
