Derived from LEESER Architecture’s World Mammoth and Permafrost Museum, Augmented Siberia is a 3-dimensional voronoi grid which emulates the self-regulating geometry of a permafrost landscape. As part of Architecture Omi’s ‘Peeling Layers of Space Out of Thin Air’ exhibition, Augmented Siberia is projected over a field on Art Omi’s Campus. The pieces of the exhibition are projected digitally, revealed to visitors on their smartphones as full scale architectural constructions. Visitors walk through the field using the screen of their smart phone as the lens to view the architectural apparitions. Augmented Siberia stretches across the entire horizon of the landscape utilizing the lack of scale of digital space, giving visitors a new experience of architecture and the vastness of nature itself.
