John Naccarato is a multi-media and inter-disciplinary artist based out of Montreal, Canada. His work involves the creation and development of systems and objects, which engage in critical discourse about the intersection of art, media, and technology and its impact on perception, identity, memory and presence. His current work integrates Augmented Reality (AR) – a mobile-based technology that straddles the divide between digital and physical space. Through AR, Naccarato intends to examine the relationship between human memory and physical space. How significant are memories when it comes to coloring our experiences of the spaces we occupy and move through on a daily basis? How does the advent of digital, mobile and virtual (cloud)-based technologies alter and augment perceptions of spatio-temporal reality? How do past and present technologies evolve and integrate with human presence and memory to configure new realities – realities with the potential to transform our state of being into what he calls ‘technological chimeras’.
