The “Travel the World with Living Images” exhibition is an immersive art experience combining paintings by artist Jaime Byrd, inspired by her travels around the globe and includes Augmented Reality (AR) featuring her film making, animation, music, and sound design that she creates for each piece of artwork.
Artwork will come to life or tell a special story with motion and sound when viewed with a smartphone or tablet and the free online app, “ARTIVIVE”. Bring headphones or earbuds in order to have the full immersive experience.
“These pieces of artwork are a collection that I have created in both 2020 and 2021,” said Byrd. “They are inspired by the many places I have traveled to and wish to travel to over the last 2 decades. My last AR collection was about being rooted at home and creating closeness with our friends and families. This next collection is all about getting back out and connecting with the rest of the world after the long pause. As a filmmaker and songwriter I have long been a storyteller and my artwork is no different. My paintings now tell an even more complex story than they could before using AR”.
The AR is included in the purchase of each painting, so viewers can take it home to share and experience it whenever they wish for years to come. Byrd has also put her digital images on the Ethereum blockchain and will offer these digital creations as collectible NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Through this technology and future technologies, Jaime loves exploring and finding new ways to innovate the way we experience artwork.
Guests will be able to use their smartphones or tablets with headphones to view the 10-30 seconds of AR using the Artivive app and pointing their camera at one of the paintings. The experience can be exhilarating, fun, and even magical.
