This thesis explores an emerging art form--mixed reality art the new opportunities, changes, and challenges it brings to art intervention. Currently mixed reality art is in its early stage of development, and there is relatively little scholarship about this subject. However, I believe augmentation as a new art form has great potential in the art field and this thesis aims to address this gap. I argue that augmentation can be used as a new means for art intervention, and that it can bring new opportunities for artists not only to augment the use of sites, but also to create a better cultural and emotional experience for the viewer. With in the scope of mixed reality art, this thesis discusses augmentation of senses, sites, and data; this includes not only the exploration of this medium through a series of my recent artworks, but also includes experiment s of other mixed reality art pioneers. I believe that my art will not only inspire my future creation, but also shed more light on this new art form.
