interactive art

LAB ART  |  LOS ANGELES, CA  |  2010

Interactive Art is an example of street ARt inside a gallery. In Lab Art, a Los Angeles gallery, when placing street artist Kai Aspire's "Masked" (George Washington) in the camera view of your smartphone (Android or Iphone), the painting unlocks a piece of augmented reality art, or ARt. This kind of augmented reality | artistic interaction is an example of hypAR-reality, which implodes the distinction between the "real" and the "imaginary." Triggered from the "real" world, the virtual "art" can reveal another layer of meaning, which is in this case... the "g"angster street artist we always knew George was ;)
