DESCRIPTION:

BOSTON CYBERARTS
George Fifeld, Director of Boston Cyberarts, will discuss the four augmented reality art exhibitions that Boston Cyberarts curated and organized in the last year. The Augmented Landscape was an exhibition of eight very large AR sculptures inspired by National Park Service’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site in Salem. ARLines of the City, curated by Brazilian artist/curator Giovanna Casimiro, was a vibrant Brazilian public art project at 10 sites within the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. Then the Boston Cyberarts Gallery hosted the exhibit Now You See It… that included works by five prominent and pioneering augmented reality artists. Finally Boston Cyberarts is assisting the Newton Arts Festival in a celebration of its 13 villages with Skywrite Newton, an AR skywriting project over all 13 villages of Newton.

HOVERLAY
Creating my own AR? Yes, you can
AR has the potential to provide new ways to connect with audiences, and inform, delight and drive action. Yet, the skills required to design, build and share AR content, are daunting to most.
Nicolas Robbe and Milan Kovacev, founders of Hoverlay, will be talking about how non-engineers, artists, creators, event organizers, can create their own AR channel and start ripping the benefits of AR today.

BONUS: The 19th is the last day of PTC’s LiveWorx conference! See https://www.liveworx.com/

Our event will be just after their lawn party tech mixer. See:
