Technology is changing the way we make, experience and share our ideas. But how do artists use it to shape their craft and the way their audiences experience it? ART + TECHNOLOGY explores how creatives are bringing the disparate fields of ART + TECHNOLOGY together to reveal surprising works that belong to a whole new genre.
ART + TECHNOLOGY Episode 26: “Can AR drive change?”
Viewing technology as a crucial part of the art world in 2018, John Craig Freeman works with AR to create authentic artwork that will be relevant to the masses. In the twenty-sixth episode of ART+TECHNOLOGY, we are introduced to John’s AR art through the lens of globalisation and local communities.
John’s project, Coming Home is an AR public art installation that raises awareness of the houseless in San Francisco. To showcase the plights of the elderly, the homeless and students; Coming Home combines AR and storytelling to create a vehicle for education and empathy through art.
