Experience art in augmented reality
Shepard Fairey AR combines great art with great tech.
Shepard Fairey AR - Damaged
Shepard's best works in AR
Artists have never been afraid to push boundaries, and now is no different.
10 years after his last solo exhibition in Los Angeles, Shepard Fairey, the man behind the iconic Hope imagery for Barack Obama, has made his work available in an incredible augmented reality (AR) experience.
Bringing the gallery to you, Damaged is a timely exhibit, focusing on the impact of social media in the modern world. It’s powerful, thought-provoking stuff, and the app does a great job of making you feel that you’re actually there in the gallery.
With great visuals and intuitive controls, you can move as if you’re playing a game, or you can use AR mode to navigate your surroundings by physically moving your device.
Everything is rendered beautifully on-screen and you can explore the exhibits just as you would in a real gallery, seeing sculptures from every angle and peering more closely at canvases to get a closer look.
Want to add some context to these creations? There’s over 100 minutes of narration from the artist himself, explaining his inspiration and motivation for the very different pieces that comprise his exhibit. Forgive the pun, but Damaged really is state of the art.
