RECENT DEVELOPMENTS include the COORDINATES COLLABORATIVE AR PUBLIC ART PROJECT (4thwallapp.org) and new ways to scale, rotate and place my VR drawings.  

Available on all Android devices equipped with ARCore and iPhone 6s and above (iOS11). 


4th Wall: A free, first-of-its-kind, AR fine art app, 4th Wall has four main features. The first allows viewers to scale, rotate, move through, place and record my VR drawings-translated-into-AR drawings. Users can experience and record the AR artworks anywhere in the world. They can also experience my LA studio in 360 or listen to a hologram of me talk about the concepts. 4th Wall now includes the site-specific, collaborative public art feature, COORDINATES

COORDINATES is a new, ongoing, collaborative public AR art exhibition which invites the viewer to be physically present at specific locations. When viewers select this feature, based on their location, they will be directed toward artworks in AR that activate the historically, politically or culturally significant sites they have chosen. Coordinates, an AR project created from the desire to use technology as a subversive form of resistance, aims to inspire thoughtful dialogue and expand our understanding of public art.

I’ve been astonished by users’ ingenuity, creativity, humor and content-creation. See @4thwallapp or #4thwallapp on Instagram for a wide and diverse variety of 4th wall images and videos––from the skies above Malawi to the Cleveland steelyards, from the 5 train to the Bronx to the LAX baggage claim, to the Mexican Border Wall, to Carnegie Hall and classrooms in Qatar––just to name a few.
