PORTLAND || PORTLAND

Multimedia artist Sean O'Brien has been experimenting with augmented reality for the past year or so, and the results are fascinating. He installed some mesmerizing images in our storefront windows for his two part installation PORTLAND || PORTLAND, that are cool enough to look at with the naked eye, but become something completely three dimensional and even fabric like when viewed through your iphone or ipad. To experience this phenomenon go to www.seanob.com/portland to download the free app, then come to SPACE to see for yourself.

If you're looking for the augmented reality experience from home, print out the image below (or come pick up a card at SPACE) and go to www.seanob.com/portland, click on the same image and hold it up to your web cam. You'll soon be holding a colorful three dimensional geodesic object in your hands.

Hold this image up to your webcam.

And you will suddenly be holding this.

Here is Sean showing Angus King how to use the app.

Pretty neat!
