Art for After Hours is very happy to discuss our successful and exciting 3D chalk art project with the very first use of animated Augmented Reality (AR) which was powered by our friends at Daqri.
We created a large scale 3D street painting titled ' Visions of Cambodia' measuring 30 by 50 feet in size drawn over six days by the team of Anthony Cappetto ( lead artist and designer), Shawn McCann, and Wendy Stum.
The real excitement for us was the development of the AR with Daqri guidance for blending the technology, the human interaction, and the traditional work of Madonnari street painting or pavement art. We displayed the AR effects through a dedicated app on our iPad to share with thousands of viewers at the Sarasota Chalk Festival this weekend, November 4th - 6th.
The app showed animated butterflies and birds inspired by Art for After Hours chalk drawn models to make our chalk art 'come alive' to the delight of the huge number of attendees. Our goal is to offer a new generation of 3D/AR chalk art projects for our corporate clients and exhibition clients alike.
If you are interested in bringing our unique blending of traditional 3D chalk art and our new AR technology to your corporate or international exhibition project, Art for After Hours is ready to discuss the possibilities with you soon.

This is a close up through our iPad of the unique Ar effects of a hummingbird and butterflies hovering in the art and around my hands through a specialized app designed by Daqri for us for use in the Art for After Hours 3D chalk art. We see this as the beginning of a new level of illusion in art and technology and wish to share the vision with the most visionary project opportunities available.
The AR effects as seen through our iPad for public viewing on a project. If you look closely, you can see the butterflies and hummingbird in motion in the center of the piece. This was effectively our test of the technology and will be able to bring this and more to our new projects this coming year.
