This paper makes an intervention into debates about what is possible to know, research and articulate about performance’s affective dimensions through a discussion of the practice-research experiment, Ernest Remains, an augmented reality installation. Reflecting on post-show interviews in which participants watched and discussed video footage of their own experience, this short argues that the affects that emerge in encounters with digital augmented reality technologies foreground a complex set of agencies at play in interactive scenographies. Moreover, it argues that digital research methods – such as video – facilitate defamiliarised access to participants’ own experiences, allowing researchers to attend to less conscious, affective, temporal moments within durational encounters.
