Screen print (60x40cm) and Augmented Reality app

 

Developing the concept of the ‘smart fence’ in a different direction, a smartphone app augments a screen print of a razor wire fragment that was part of the material stolen from the Hungarian border fence. A digital close-up view of the wire’s rusty patches and sharp edges offers a starting point for reflection on the very low-tech violence that is implied by this material aspect of the European Union’s outer borders.

The AR app was developed in collaboration with the AURORA project at the University of Applied Sciences Berlin with support from the European Union.
