Center on Contemporary Art Presents High Tech Pop-Up (AR)t Book

As part of CoCA's ongoing effort to push the boundaries of contemporary art—in this case by bringing new technology to its publications—CoCA jurors Joseph Roberts and David Francis have worked with Producer Ray C. Freeman III to select 18 contemporary artworks to present in a technology-enhanced art volume, Pop-up (AR)t Book. Similar to a traditional pop-up book, three dimensional versions of featured artists' work spring to life as the viewer turns each page. But instead of elaborate paper cutouts, new technology called Augmented Reality (AR) allows the viewer to see the artwork in three dimensions on their mobile device – iPhone, iPad, and Android.

CoCA Celebrates Launch Of Pop-Up (AR)t at Special Reception

CoCA celebrated "CoCA Pop-Up (AR)t," with a new book and exhibition at CoCA Rubix, 515 Harvard Avenue East, Seattle, Wed-Sat, noon-6pm.

In the exhibition, the artists were featured with backlit AR "targets" that allow visitors to view larger scale Augmented Reality representations of the art in the context of a gallery show. Physical versions of some of the artwork were also on view so gallery goers could experience both the "real" and the "virtual" editions of selected works. The event also hosted a full-scale re-creation of the CoCA p(AR)k exhibition presented at 2015's PARKing Day event. Pieces from that event include 10-foot-tall Augmented Reality trees created by Casey Scalf of sensebellum.com.

In addition to Scalf, other participants in the project include Northwest artists Miguel Edwards, Alan Fulle, Jeff Mihalyo, Ray C. Freeman III, Stephen Rock, BK Tran, j shagam, Xavier Lopez, Jr., Karen Hackenberg, L. Kelly Lyles, and Reilly Donovan together with California artists Amiko Matsuo, Megan Geckler, Corey Dunlap, and Bradley Tsalyuk, plus Joseph Reyes from Seoul, Korea and Nina McGowan from Dublin, Ireland.

Rock's Studio provided the printing for the exhibition, and Castanes Architects, P.S., A.I.A. contributed software used to assemble many of the models in the book and exhibition.

How to View "CoCA Pop-Up (AR)t"

The Wikitude app used to view the 3D models in the book and exhibition can be found in the iOS App Store and on Google Play. To save time and avoid bandwidth issues, users should download and install the app to their phone or tablet before visiting the gallery.
