Natural Interactions

Augmented Reality

Natural Interactions is the current artistic focus of Code on Canvas Co-Director, Lukasz Karluk. From genetically modified alien species combating climate change, to parasitic AR infestations, Natural interactions is an ongoing project that explores ways of connecting digital experiences to the natural world. Whilst utilising the latest in AR technology and photogrammetry, Lukasz creates virtual experiences that tell a story of our organic and digital worlds colliding.

 
 
 

Terraform

Augmented Reality



 
 
 

Terraform is a new pilot program to combat climate change. Genetically modified alien species have been introduced into the earths ecosystems to capture and process harmful gases. The project has been described as the earths emergency respirator, a desperate attempt to help it bounce back from its alarming decline.

Extrusions

Augmented Reality



 
 
 
 

Extraction of the charged ore from the ancient rock is an extremely volatile process, susceptible to combustion at the slightest bump. After lasering the rock, the sample is lifted by drones in a gravitational net which reacts with the rock salts, creating a shimmer - the Shims as the local operators call it.

 
 
 

Extrusions

Augmented Reality



 
 
 

Scans of the termite mounds revealed a signal originating from the nest below the ground and radiating up the mound, like a radio tower, communicating with nearby colonies.

 
 
 

Bush Mirror

Augmented Reality



 
 
 

Luminous fungi found under bark of eucalyptus visualise the network activity of an entire bushland root ecosystem. When stimulated with an electrical charge, the surface illuminates for several minutes. The local elders call this the heart of the bush and use it to predict environmental cues.

 
 
 

Glitch

Augmented Reality



 
 
 

Parasitic AR infestation latching onto host trees are causing the bush to glitch out. Not much is yet known about the distortion but it seems to only effect trees exposed to one specific bushfire that happened some 20 years ago.
