The Selfie Drawings transcends the parameters of a physical book. Once a week over the course of a year Gannis created a new augmented reality experience for each of the 52 digital drawings printed in the book. Augmented Reality or AR allows artists to place virtual elements: videos, 3D graphics, images, and audio, into the physical world, providing “mixed reality” experiences that can offer new perspectives on how we perceive people, places and things. Using the Blippar app, users can hover over any static drawing, and a new dynamic experience appears on their screens.

The event is free and open to the public.
