Re+Public published two new videos demonstrating recent work with their Augmented Reality app at the Wynwood Walls in Miami, and the Bowery/Houston wall in NY.
What they’re doing here hints at wild possibilities. I was able to work with them in Miami, and wish we had months not weeks to try everything out and play with it. Thinking about how this works is like witnessing a new “internet” open up where nothing existed. The motivation for Re+Public is to crash this emerging understanding of a new public space with art and creative open ended purposes, before commercial and legal interests clog the discourse. You can read more from Public Ad Campaign, one of two collaborators behind Re+Public, the other being The Heavy Projects.
There’s five functioning murals in the Wynwood compound, mine is inside their Nicelook Gallery.
See their second video at Bowery Houston here.
