Happy 2018 Everyone!
With a new year underway, we look back at the 2017 3D and 4D pieces by internationally recognized artist Anthony Cappetto created around the US and around the world.
The art was fun to design, to create, and we look forward to more 3D art for our clients, returning and new.
New York Build: Javits Center, NYC
Inspired by the iconic 'Lunch Atop a Skyscraper', we created the steel beam hovering over Manhattan at a Building Tradeshow.
'Collapsing Ramp' Garden Grove, CA: A 3D chalk art piece tying in augmented reality (4D) seen through an onsite monitor. We used digital models of robots and fluttering flags of our client to bring human interaction (me on bicycle), the 3D hand drawn chalk art, and the augmented reality animation.
Sunflowers and dragonflies in Battery Park, NYC: A street art installation for an event for Battery Park City Parks in June.
'Freedom' Baltimore, MD: A social and political statement made to address the current atmosphere in the US with the concept of butterflies escaping oppression in any of its forms in September.
'Betta Fish Kite' Crewe, England, United Kingdom: Expressing the beauty and conceptuality of a fish kite hovering over the countryside at a festival in the UK last August.
'A Puzzling Reality' Tizarte Event in Antwerp, Belgium: A 3D street art piece using a purposely fading motif of a puzzle fading away to 'reality' and objects such as the sunflowers fading from higher resolution to simpler resolution. Our dragonflies were designed consistently at the same level across the piece to overlay/tie in the fadeaway concept.
' Refugee: Here but Not Here...': A serious piece address the issue of refugee children throughout the world, although we focused on Syria, South Sudan, and Myanmar. The child in an atmosphere of desolation enjoys a respite blowing bubbles (given to her by an aid worker) evanescent, temporal just as we feel for the child's plight but move on quickly - Here but Not Here...
LIC Beer Festival, Long Island City NYC: A sunny Fall day brought us to create this entertaining design with pumpkins, pretzels, and of course - beer!
This was a fun year with the art experimenting with tying in animated augmented reality, conceptual ideas, sociopolitical messages, and interacting with our public in the US and abroad.
A special thanks to Wendy Stum who assisted and collaborated with me on some of the pieces especially 'Freedom' and ' Refugee: Here but Not Here...'.
