Over/Understory

Augmented Reality created during a print residency at Cheltenham Center for the Arts.

Several pieces of Over Understory are enhanced with Augmented Reality using Artivive. The augmentation for these prints allowed me to extend the movement of the work, a key concept in the series, into a 3rd dimension. Artivive allows the viewer of the art to use its app to see the work with an added, animated layer.

To view in Artivive, grab the app here and point your phone at the screen images below. You can also view the animations directly below.
Turn your sound on.

View the animation without the app above, or using the Artivive app (MUCH cooler!), click the images below to enlarge and point the app at the image on screen. Sound on.

Kinship

Micorrizal Connections

Kinship was an installation using augmented reality (AR) in High School Park, Elkins Park, PA. Signs were placed at chosen trees around the 11 acre eco-park with cards registered to the 3-D animations via the Artivive app. Kinship highlights the micorrhizal network under the feet of all trees, speaking to the connections we all share. The images used for the Kinship AR were post processed in Photoshop and embellished to enhance the contrast for registration in Artivive.
