Tamiko Thiel: Rewilding the City
Please click the link to join the webinar.
Join artist Tamiko Thiel for a virtual artist talk and AR workshop. Thiel’s artworks explore the intersection of space, place and cultural memory. Thiel’s most recent AR project ReWildAR offers a vision of how Washington D.C. can be ‘rewilded’ to create a thriving, sustainable environment for nature in the city.
In the first half of the event, Thiel will give an artist talk with a general yet personal overview of different technologies and uses for VR and AR art. The second half will present a deeper dive into topics ranging from dramatic structure for interactive experiences to platform choices to address conservation and archiving of artworks.
Participants are encouraged to download ARpoise, Thiel’s free and open source app, from the App Store or Play Store. Upon opening the apps there is a list of demo works by her and her partner /p. During the talk, she will give tips for viewing other artworks of theirs on ARpoise around the world.
This event is co-presented by Boston CyberArts
