Another exciting year of bringing my vision of 3D/4D chalk art with emerging technologies is underway and I have never felt more excited about the possibilities in front of me.
New work is underway from Art for After Hours for the spring as well as new initiatives for the early summer too. What I am thinking about in terms of my post today is how to bring clients with a sincere, committed vision in alignment with the expertise and 'behind the scenes' details to realize the visions imagined by all.
Work underway for a 3D immersive illusion for a cardiovascular conference in San Francisco. Art work is 15 feet high, 20 feet long and extends on the ground 10 feet away from the vertical panel.
Deep in thought - detailing the ground portion of this immersive 3D illusion...
And the finished piece...
Pieces like this take time, logistics, and coordination to realize for success.
When clients come to me, many have grand visions which can be realized again with appropriate planning, coordination, and determination of not only the 3D art but the successful integration of 4D items such as augmented reality to emerging technologies ranging from wearables to virtual engagement. The 3D 4D artwork below, 'Visions of Cambodia' was 30 feet wide by 40 feet deep and took my team and I over 150 artist-hours to complete. Notice our iPad setup carrying a dediacated AR app to show the computer generated butterflies and hummingbird seen in the third picture. Special thanks to Daqri for the AR portion of the installation.
Consulting proves effective when working with clients not only in US projects but projects abroad. I work with clients with projects in India, Dubai, and Uruguay that require coordination and logistical planning with government, academic institutional team members on tight time frames for such works.
Below are pictures from my experience providing lectures, workshops, for students and facaulty at the Universidad de La Republicca in Montevideo, Uruguay for a project sponsored by the US State Department and hosted by the US Embassy in Montevideo. This was a great expereince and the fun all of us had speaks for itself!
Having a light hearted moment with one of the students involved in workshops I developed for students and faculty at the Universidad de La Republicca in Montevideo, Uruguay. Below, use of AR as part of a 3D 4D chalk art project for IIT Bombay.
Engagement with the students who had never seen 3D 4D chalk art at the time, 2012 at IIT Bombay (Mumbai) India.
Festival related projects especially require coordination well in advance to present, expand, and grow over the years. Project festival consulting in South Carolina, Dubai,and Mexico.
The above images are examples of street painting festival consulting projects as chalk components that Art for After Hours has been involved in since 2001. New festival events I am engaging in this year have workshops, lectures, and student artist group projects to be covered in upcoming posts.
The purpose of this discussion is to show prospective clients that through the decade plus experience I and Art for After Hours have in producing, designing, procuring talent, for street painting festival events, corporate installations, and major festival exhibition pieces in the US and worldwide - all which has been realized through close planning, logistical deployment, and execution of works. And with the advent of emerging technologies - the bar has been raised even higher than ever before and clients benefit from professional grade consulting that those who have been in and helped shape the industry bring to the new project and its development.
If you are in the process of investigating the benefits, issues of scope and deployment of the latest in 3D 4D street painting art installation solutions for your tradeshows, launches, initiatives or festivals in the US or worldwide, I as an internationally recognized artist and principal of the first professional street painting art company (2001) look forward to helping you achieve your goal through art of technology driven projects of my design as well as consulting so your projects may be ultimately realized.
