ARt: Storytelling in Augmented Reality!
On this inaugural episode of Six Degrees of Storytelling, co-hosts Rachel Schwerin and Brittney Lanni are joined by special guests Cyrene Q (@CyreneQ), a social media artist, influencer and author, and Nancy Baker Cahill (@4thwallapp), multi-disciplinary artist and founder of 4th Wall.
Over the course of the episode we discuss the potential to create enriched experiences through augmented art. We discuss how augmented reality has evolved to be a new creative medium, enabling stories and shared experiences to be democratized.
We explore how augmented art opens doors to creating contextually-powerful public art, through existing social platforms like Snapchat, or emerging mobile platforms such as 4th Wall and Coordinates, enabling artists to flip the script on age-old paradigms.
