Re+Public: Re+Imagining Public Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A creative collaboration between The Heavy Projects (Los Angeles) and PublicAdCampaign (New York City), Re+Public is born out of a mutual interest in democratizing access to our shared visual environment. Re+Public uses emerging technologies, and mobile device augmented reality in particular, to alter the current expectations of urban media and accomplish our core mission of re+imagining public space through site specific collaborations and mural installations that use narrative and interactivity to explore the possibilities beyond static 2D art.
Through academic discourse, grassroots activism, and street-level tech deployments, Re+Public has sought to disrupt the unequal balance between outdoor commercial imagery and public expression. In line with this ideology, we will discuss how augmented reality has been used, and can be used in the future to leap the private property boundaries that control public space access by allowing a layer of openly accessible digital expression to exist on top of physical environments.
