#Covfefe golf
Through Augmented reality (AR), a golf course is revealed on the ceiling of the space and an urban landscape on the floor. A virtual network of relations investor-politics-urbanism connects the golf course where the uber rich make decisions about the cityscape below. Suddenly, the city under the visitors’ feet gets flooded - AR reminds us of the material implications of invisible power networks.
