Chicago Art Department is pleased to present one of our 2015-16 Learning is a Lifestyle artists, Kerry Richardson, working with Miguel Aguilar to produce programs and works around augmented graffiti. REVELATIONS will feature work made in the LIAL project REVELATIONS. Augmented Reality (AR) Graffiti. Miguel Aguilar and Kerry Richardson are the lead artists who have been working with teen artists from Juarez HS. The work produced in the project will be site-specific digital street art that appears as an overlay on physical locations when viewed through the AR app on a smartphone. For the exhibition, there will be mounted photos of the trigger images, meaning the physical locations that the teens choose as the sites for the artwork. Visitors to the gallery will download the AR app and point their phones at the photos in order to view the digital drawings, text and animations as AR. There will also be maps of the physical locations of the sites, plus promotion on social media and perhaps a website featuring the images.
