Two years in the making, Dream Diaspora & Destiny, is now up at 53rd and Lancaster in West Philadelphia. It is the first augmented reality mural in the city, with free downloadable app for iPhone, to activate a hidden digital layer to the actual physical mural. The app also has an experience you can do anywhere in the world.
Artist genius, Joshua Mays, Blue Design and I, were commissioned to do a collaboration, by the forward thinking, Mural Arts Philadelphia. We worked with students from Mastery Shoemaker High School and The Haverford School to create the sound design for the original score and images within the mural. Sounds were sourced from the neighborhood and interviews from elders in the community, which are part of the AR experience. A truly powerful community project that will transform the neighborhood for generations to come.
