UnStumm | Augmented Voyage is the UnStumm telematic Augmented Reality plattform and smartphone app. It aims to develop a new vision of a real time collaborative use of AR/VR technologies in telematic performances. It creates a new approach to VR technology, which is not yet used for
telematic live performances with video and sound art.

UnStumm is now increasingly focusing on productions in VR and AR space. This enables an international project development and performance without physical travel.
Claudia Schmitz and Nicola L. Hein will invite different artists to form audio-visual groups to perform in telematic virtual reality settings. The performances will take 40 minutes.

In collaboration with programmer and media artist Sven Hahne, UnStumm is developing a platform for telematic augmented reality performances, which enables the projection of video and sound into a virtual space and thus opens up a virtual space for telematic communication between musicians and video artists from all over the world.

The audience can access and move through and around these telematic augmented reality performances via a webbased app on their own smartphone. The download of UnStumm’s smartphone app enables the audience to particpate in 3-dimensional live performances as well as the retrospective visit of past performances. Our Augmented Reality project transfers the stage space into the virtual space and integrates the real space in which the audience or the concrete user of the app is present at that moment, here using their own smartphone as 3D glasses.
