Acoustic Garden is an Augmented Audio project about sensory integration and ubiquitous computing.
Acoustic Garden applies spatialized sound synthesis to the physical world with handheld AR. When the virtual world is mostly hidden in sight, sound becomes the core of narrative and guides us to rediscover our surroundings. Listen, and discover, our movement distorts the soundscape in turn, constructing an augmented acoustic space. Find the sound, a virtual garden “bloom” above both the visual and acoustic world.
