Hanjio (Unfolding Urban Memories):
Hanjio is a public art intervention that puts together elements of the Korean culture, augmented reality and the discussion about open source heritage. Using the origami practice as the main aesthetic reference, this interactive furniture is an abstract reference to the millenarian practice of origami in Asia as well to the heritage attached to it. The thousands faces to be unfold in the origami inspire the idea to make each façade interactive and open to expose potential memories.

Giovanna’s views about Augmented Reality Future
Giovanna has strong beliefs toward the future of mixed reality applications, that consists of augmented reality and augmented virtuality.
Moreover, she thinks that sooner or later mobile platform developers like IOS and Android would start integrating augmented reality into their native apps. Filters provided in native camera applications is an example of developers providing built in augmented reality in their apps.
She is moving forward to use knowledge to break the system of control by massive corporations. Her work stands aside from politics in technology.
