Augmented Reality

During the beginning of the spring semester 2019, students in Proficient and Advanced level Media Arts courses developed new collage work based around Augmented Reality technologies. Creating original collage works that act as "trigger" images, students worked past their original work to take the viewer farther into the possibilities of their composition and/or narrative direction. Utilizing the HP Reveal AR app, viewers are able to apply the augmented reality over the image.

Seventh and eighth grade Media Arts students borrowed a technique called rotoscoping from the movie animation field to create digital self-portraits. Rotoscoping is a technique that animators use to produce realistic action. Originally, animators projected photographed live-action movie images onto a glass panel and traced over each image, frame by frame. These students used the app ProCreate to produce multi-layered rotoscoped images using original photos as inspiration. Students experimented with a variety of brushes to create textures, patterns, and abstract background environments.
