Liron Efrat is a Ph.D student (ABD) in the department of Art History at the University of Toronto, where she researches Augmented Reality art. Her master’s thesis explores hybrids of art and pornography in contemporary photography, and her current research focuses on artistic hybrids that employ Augmented Reality technology, to better understand the role this technology plays in diminishing the division between the virtual and the real. Liron is also a resident scholar at the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto, and a data analyst and research assistant in the VR and AR project “Jewish Homelands.”
