Hidden Digital Graffiti in Augmented Reality

“Throughout the month of October I will be featuring articles and links brought to you by Getty Images. Working at Getty Images, I am fortunate to be regularly exposed to the best in world photography, both past and present and the cutting edge of the visual dialogue that frames our lives. I hope you enjoy.” No doubt augmented reality technology will eventually be used to put obnoxious advertising everywhere, but then artists can always hit back — with digital graffiti.

Hidden Digital Graffiti in Augmented Reality

One of the people working with Microsoft’s  Hololens AR headset has painted digital graffiti at the Bellevue Arts Museum. It is entitled Holographic Type Sculpture and was placed inside the museum by Microsoft user experience designer DongYhoon Park as a demonstration of what Hololens can do. As if getting a jump start on the question of whether graffiti is art, placing it within an art museum seemed quite apt. Who wouldn’t like the idea of crime-less graffiti?!
