An installation of virtual reality and augmented reality projects by new media artist John Craig Freeman, Professor of Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College, Boston.
John Craig Freeman, Professor in the Department of Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College works in emergent digital media to create virtual and alternative reality installations that address social and political issues of currency. With his work, Freeman examines sites where the forces of globalization are impacting the lives of individuals. He seeks to expand the notion of public art by exploring how digital networked technology is transforming our sense of place. This exhibition features two of his recent subjects interpreted through three different projects: Chinatown Station with Service to Wuhan (2017); Virtual U.S./Mexico Border (2017); and Border Memorial: Frontera de los Muertos (2015).
