AR/VRxIoT+AI+? = Hybrid Space
The combination of physical and media space, of local place and digital networks, is coined Hybrid Space.

Space today is transformed by technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality, becoming increasingly hybrid. With the Internet of Things (IoT) Hybrid Space is becoming ubiquitous. Artificial Intelligence and Big Data have the ambition and potential to algorithmically manage these Hybrid Spaces.

Lecture, @ Advanced Social and Political Research Institute, University of Latvia, 22-23 November 2018

Deep Space is a long-term investigative program initiated to deal with politics of memory, controversial monuments and heritage.

How to transform and re-signify Valle de los Caídos (“Valley of the Fallen”), the Francoist monument in the Sierra de Guadarrama close to Madrid?Valle de los Caídos with its 152-meter-tall cross visible from more than 30 kilometers away and its “basilica”, a 263-meter long crypt with a 52-meter high vault cut out of the granite mountain rock, is one of the world’s most controversial monuments.The structure was built between 1940 and 1959 partly by the forced labor of Spanish republican political prisoners. Next to the remains of over 33.000 fallen from both sides of the conflict (that were moved there from mass graves spread all over the country), the basilica features Franco’s grave in its most prominent spot – and next to it the grave of the Falangist leader Antonio Primo de Rivera.

Humboldt Vulkan by Hybrid Space Lab @ Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Berlin, Germany. Open from 9.30 till 22.00 16 June-1 July 2018, MakeCity Festival 2018

As an innovative flexible transparent structure, Humboldt Volcano contrasts with the historical appearance of the introverted power-radiating reconstruction of the Berlin palace, which houses Humboldt Forum.
Humboldt Volcano, standing for a pluralistic multiculturalism, enables the appropriation of the Humboldt Forum, opening it up to the city and international public.
