Channel TWo to Launch “Instances” and Lecture at APSU on April 9, 2013

Channel TWo Terminal


Project Information 

An instance is an intentional hidden message, inside joke, or feature in a work such as a computer program, movie, book, or crossword. Some [instances] may be intentional tools used to detect illegal copying, others are clearly examples of unauthorized functionality that has slipped through the quality-control tests at the vendor.

“Channel TWo: Instances” consists of thirteen augmented reality instances hidden across the campus of Austin Peay State University, beginning on April 9 and running through May 10. Each instance will direct you to a Channel TWo, downloadable friendly care package. All thirteen instances, you will need to download the Layar augmented reality browser by going to the Layar website and downloading the browser onto your iPhone or Android phone ( In order to begin finding instances, visit the Channel TWo site for instructions at:




Adam Trowbridge and Jessica Westbrook collaborate as Channel TWo (CH2), a studio/research construct focused on mixed reality, media, design, development, and distribution, authorized formats + unauthorized ideas, systems of control + radical togetherness. Channel TWo is loosely aligned with the concept of over-identification, Slavoj Žižek’s description of a tactic intended to reveal the hidden nature of dominant ideologies — not by pointing to them but by becoming extreme forms of them. CH2 intersects joyful/play-oriented aesthetic experiences and user interfaces with challenging social undercurrents. Projects take the form of computer viruses, virtual environments, augmented realities, and motion/generative graphics. CH2 was awarded a Rhizome Commission in 2012, a Turbulence Commission in 2011, and a Terminal Commission in 2009. Trowbridge and Westbrook are both Assistant Professors at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where they teach in the Department of Contemporary Practices and the Department of Art and Technology Studies.
