COLAC OTWAY ARTS TRAIL AUGMENTED GRAFFITI PROJECT with Liberatas
This summer at the Colac Makers Space we ran a six-week digital art workshop in which students created their own animated, augmented graffiti pieces. Drawing on concepts regarding self-identity and how it is intrinsically related to our place and position in time and space. Students were encouraged to create their own Graffiti ‘tags’ in such a way that they felt represented them and the place in which they live. They were then taught some basic animation principles and mentored through the animation process so they could bring their still image to life. Using a free Augmented reality app, Halo AR. Students were able to turn their still graffiti pieces into moving animations when their image is scanned using their smart phone. It’s a new, digital form of street art. To view the works in their animated state you can download the Halo AR app for free or you can check out the links below!
