Three Angry Men

$LinkAlt

As part of my Master's coursework, I took a project-based class in Media Design for Augmented Reality. My design team developed the idea of a "seated drama" augmented experience, which allows a user to take in a dramatic performance from the point of view of each of the characters involved. We adapted a scene from the Reginald Rose play "12 Angry Men" to create a condensed, proof-of-concept version of the seated drama experience, entitled "Three Angry Men." Our version allows a user, wearing a see-through head-mounted display, to share a seat with any of three members of a deliberating jury and see the unfolding action through the eyes of (and with the biases held by) each juror. Our initial concept has been re-filmed and re-written recently to incorporate a fourth juror and has become one of the long-term demonstration pieces maintained by the Augmented Environments Lab. The project also served to motivate the development of an AR content-management and prototyping platform known as DART.
