Art Professor Transforms the Whitney
Will Pappenheimer brought his "augmented reality" to the Whitney Museum of American Art's last Upper East Side gala.
For the final gala at its Upper East Side building in November, before the move to a new home downtown, the Whitney Museum of American Art commissioned Associate Professor of Art Will Pappenheimer to create two works in augmented reality and projection.
Proxy, 5-WM2A allowed guests to launch an app called Proxy on their mobile devices and tablets to generate an immersive visual display of objects and color.
In Skywrite AR guests could draw images and write messages on a tablet screen, which then appeared in the form of virtual airplane trails on a sky projected onto the museum ceiling as well as high above the museum in virtual augmented reality.
Earlier in the month, Pappenheimer and his collaborator, Tamiko Thiel, presented their ongoing project Biomer Skelters at the International Symposium on Electronic Art in Dubai. As participants walked through the streets of Dubai, a wearable biosensing system repainted the cityscape with fanciful augmented reality vegetation, as the image in our banner illustrates.
