Artolution’s Upcoming Projects
2019 Summer Youth Project
In the summer of 2019, immigrant youth seeking asylum in the US will spend 4 weeks working with Artolution artists to create a large-scale community mural in a prominent location in Manhattan that will “come to life” through augmented reality (AR) technology. Using the tools of art and technology, these youth will share their struggles and their dreams for the future with the world, along the way contributing to the cultural heritage of New York City!
The project will include multiple avenues of art expression including murals, performance, mask-making, animation, augmented reality and a documentary film.
The final portion of the project will be open to the media and public spectators and will include a performance in front of the mural that ties together all aspects of the project.
From the day of the performance forward, visitors to the mural will be able to hold their smartphones up to the mural to access an animated replica of the performance that will begin playing on their screens. The characters in the mural will “come to life” before them emerging from the wall to move and dance in a way that reflects the performance.
