“Skin to Skin: Performing Augmented Reality” examines the use of augmented reality in recent examples of digital performance and installation investigation at the Deakin Motion.Lab. The concept of ‘digital dualism’ is discussed as a means of mapping some of the conceptual shifts augmented reality makes possible for dance and performance technology. Digital dualism sees the disjuncture between ‘real’ and ‘virtual’ in digital performance, as in life, as an artefact of an earlier technological/cultural moment in which the digital had not yet become embedded within and a conduit for everyday life. The authors argue that digital performance within an augmented reality framework provides a demonstration of the inability of digital dualism to stand up even in relation to what might be considered the most unlikely candidate for digital distribution – the embodied experience of the human body.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
