This talk will highlight 'Point-of-View', more specifically, 'Point-of-Eye', as a characteristic of AR eyewear that is beginning to impact and influence contemporary visual culture in the age of AR as a new medium, particularly as a trope in storytelling.

AR eyewear like Google's “Glass” (2013) and Mann's “Digital Eye Glass” (EyeTap) (1981) are worn in front of the human eye, serving as a camera to both record the viewer's environment and superimpose computer-generated imagery atop the present environment. With the position of the camera, such devices present a direct 'Point-of-Eye' (PoE), as Mann calls it, providing the ability to see through someone else's eyes. What new stories will the AR apparatus enable?
