IUXTA investigates the narrative possibilities of the network. IUXTA generates a user generated, augmented reality network will evolve across world. I invite you to participate in this multi-nodal narrative, a narrative that is always in a flux of fragmentation and recombination. Chapter 1 was presented as part of ISEA2013 and now Chapter 2 begins to evolve centred around Adelaide and ISMAR 2013
In IUXTA I ask you to help spread and embed my own personal and historical narrative into the physical world around us. Over time, this narrative will proliferate according to its own inner logic.
You can use the IUXTA mobile viewer to observe and listen to the narrative’s current state in real time and in relation to your own physical location. You can also use the IUXTA web app (not available on mobile devices) to explore a simulation of the narrative network. Physical locations where narrative nodes are concentrated are marked but not labeled.
The IUXTA app is now available on the app store and the google play store.
Note: Time scales in the augmented IUXTA environment are much slower than in the physical environment on which it sits. The transformation and evolution of the networked narrative is best observed over a number of days or weeks.
