The urban AR lab was an experimental workspace at Stadttfinden Festival that took place in September 2017 at an old factory building called Glasfabrik located at the periphery of Leipzig.

As a team of four (with Jörn Röder and Lennert Raesch) we developed sensor kits that sent repeated measurements like carbon dioxide, air humidity, temperature and water values to smartphones in Virtual Reality (VR) headsets. By causing changes in the mobile device’s camera image we visualized the invisible and unvisited phenomenons of growing cities. We invited Stadttfinden visitors into our open laboratory and took them with us on what we called AR walks to re-see and reimagine the urban habitat in performative and experimental ways.
