Technology and Art
Keeping our eyes focused on human interaction with art and augmented reality these past weeks. I would like to highly recommend taking a look at Mexican visual artist Yunuen Esparza, she has masterfully added augmented reality to complement her paintings and bring them to life.
Technology has been providing artists with new ways to express themselves for a very long time. From the simple discovery of being able to transport oils outside and allow impressionists to paint captivating landscapes to using augmented reality with paintings. This marriage creates a multi-dimensional and surprising experience to the viewer and allows you to continue the story with a second reality.
A great example of her work can be seen at her exhibition of mixed media titled “Through the looking glass” at The Grady Alexis Gallery, New York. Almost 2 years ago, it featured her own app that shows how technology is now changing the way we make, see and experience art. Needless to say that art and technology are constantly evolving and changing to feed each other and become a better version of themselves.
