I awoke this morning to learn that my image of 'Visions of Cambodia' was used as part of a post explaining a way of imaging how to view the new 3D phone screen for the Fire Phone. It was a very pleasant surprise!

For those readers who are new to 3D chalk art, my piece measured 30 feet across by 40 feet deep, taking my chalk team and I over 150 man-hours to complete over a five day period. 'Visions of Cambodia' is also the first 3D chalk art design to use 4D use of emerging technologies which in this case was animated augmented reality (AR).

There is a great deal of work involved in the creation of art of this size and complexity

If you look closely you can see a hummingbird and two butterflies hovering just out of my reach... This way I allowed people to interact with the chalk art illusion and the 3D animations simultaneously - a first when I designed and initiated this concept with the help of Daqri, a professional AR vendor.
Seeing the new innovation in the 3D phone screen besides the portion using my art as an example is a clear step in the direction of wider uses of 3D and emerging technologies in everyday consumer use. My company, Art for After Hours is a clear and first adopter of emerging technologies with my 3D chalk/street art and ideas. I have applied the uses of 3D chalk art using virtual spaces, figurative animation, and I am constantly seeking out new ways to mingle new technologies with my designs for corporate, exhibition, government, and festival clientele in the USA, Europe, India, Japan, Hong Kong, UAE, Mexico, and Uruguay.
