The Wizardry of Augmented Reality (AR) with Carla Gannis

Category: Virtual and Augmented Reality

Tags: None

In 1901 L. Frank Baum, the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, imagined a kind of augmented reality (AR), viewed through spectacles, that could indicate specific characteristics about a person invisible to the naked eye. Today, AR allows us to place virtual elements: videos, 3D graphics and audio, into the physical world. These added elements are experienced through smart phones and tablets, providing “mixed reality” experiences that can inform, entertain and educate us.
In this 3 hour workshop visiting artist Carla Gannis will teach participants how to use AR as an artistic medium. Through hands-on demonstrations using the Blippar AR builder, participants will produce their very own augmented works of art.

Workshop Pre-Requisites

Participants will need to download the Blippar app, before class, to their smartphones or tablets. We will have some devices available for attendees who do not have their own. Familiarity with an image editor like Photoshop is recommended for resizing and collaging photo elements, and shortening video clips.
