Recently, I stepped out of the office and into the virtual world to create a 3D Lowry inspired painting that appears when using augmented reality and a specialised app.
As technology advances, our connection to and interaction with public spaces changes.
Technology can now enhance our experience of a place and create new ways of interaction with the landscape – just look at Pokemon go!
Our view of reality will one day be a more prominent blend of technology and nature where individuals can connect to the city through virtual experiences. Elements such as history, heritage, art and navigation can be brought alive through a virtual plain.
Hopefully this will increase use of spaces, encourage people to be more active and engage and empower communities.
