Re+Public is a New York-based collective of coders and artists that specializes in combining murals with augmented reality. Their custom-developed mobile app digitally resurfaces walls and buildings in urban centers by overlaying digital content onto the physical environment, thus empowering the public to reclaim their communal space. They also create provocative, ‘activated’ mural work that pays homage to and lampoons early soviet and WPA propaganda. The result is arresting, completely transforming large public spaces. A Re+Public mural commissioned for SXSW Interactive 2014 is still visible in Austin at the intersection of Trinity & 6th.
The Austin Museum of Digital Art (AMODA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage the public and artists in the creation, understanding, and appreciation of digital art. More info →
