In the exhibit Mark Skwarek will showcase a series of recent augmented reality interventions created across the globe. These confrontational, politically charged works were created by the artist and his collaborators. Skwarek acts as instigator and organizer for the community at large. Several of the pieces feature an array of contributors joining arms in a virtual protest. From the first AR in North Korea to the theft of the British Museum's Parthenon [Elgin] Marbles the work will explore the meaning of reality and public and private space.
For this exhibition, Skwarek will release his greatest collaborative work ever–
This app lets the public create anything, anywhere with augmented reality! Skwarek, programmer Animesh Anand, and friends will perform with the app during the coarse of the show.
The creatAR app was created by Mark Skwarek [project lead], Animesh Anand [lead programmer], David Chen, Naomi Namba, Arunvivek Supramanian, and Amy Espesito.
