In Between: Experiencing Liminality
+ Interview, Statement, Artwork

by Dragoş Gheorghiu and Livia Ştefan

The present paper is a study of rituality in art and daily life; its main subject is the detailed analysis of the rites of passage which de-contextualise the individual when s/he enters in contact with traditional architectural
spaces. Therefore, the paper proposes a close reading of the discontinuities of the spaces experienced by the individual, realised by means of art and Augmented Reality (AR). The authors intend (by means of relating
the creative act to digital technology) to put the spectator in a position of awareness of the physical and psychological discontinuity of a ritual space, which situates the viewer not here, not there in a stage of liminality.
