Augmented / Mixed Reality Canvas / Art

Following a series of pieces using augmented reality elements, here are some canvases I enhanced with another level of perception to give the viewer the option of diving into the artwork, exploring it from all sides equally.Up to date I was always rather sceptical about VR and AR and the direction of perception these mediums are leading. Basically away from reality that is and the latter I cherish a lot. But I must admit, the sensation of diving into an artwork is quite something special and offers tremendous possibilities. As always we can only see where this future will lead us.

Augmented / Mixed Reality Graffiti / Art

Lately I have been experimenting with augmented and mixed reality application development and here are the first results. I was always sceptical about VR and AR and the direction of perception these mediums are leading. Basically away from reality that is and the latter I cherish a lot. But I must admit, the sensation of diving into an artwork is quite something special and offers tremendous possibilities. As always we can only see where this future will lead us.After painting on the wall directly, I created some 3D models to match the piece with Unity 3d. With this software and the Vuforia package I built an AR app that runs on my android phone, matching the 3d models on the reference image of the wall.

@home / infinity mirror sculpture series

@Home
Mixed Media inside object frame
52cm x 52cm x 5cm

This typographic sculpture – made mostly of Kapa board- uses an infinite mirror effect to create the ultimate depth illusion. The LED lights that are mounted on the inside can be controlled through a remote control (included in the package) and are powered through a battery pack that can be refilled with three regular AA batteries on the back of the frame. On full power the set of batteries last between 2 and 6 hours (depending on the quality of the batteries. When the LED´s are switched off, the frame reflects merely the inside of the room (just like a blue-ish mirror) and one can hardly see the inside of the frame. Comes with a remote control to switch on and off and change through different light modes.
