The Wizardry of Augmented Reality (AR) with Carla Gannis
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.
