"ai no message" is an augmented-reality print created for A.I.R. Gallery's 2015 "Wish You Were Here" show.
Visitors to the gallery were able to see an animated version overlayed over the print by focusing on it with their mobile-device cameras.
The title of this piece means "love letter" or "love message" when translated from Japanese. Using augmented reality technology, ai no message engages with expanded ideas of "place", "space", and "distance". How does this intention of sending a letter to connect with someone located physically distant become more complicated when virtual/augmented realities are introduced?
