An immersive art experience combining paintings by artist Jaime Byrd, inspired by her travels around the globe and includes Augmented Reality (AR) featuring her film making, animation, music, and sound design that she creates for each piece of artwork. Artwork will come to life or tell a special story with motion and sound when viewed with a smartphone or tablet and the free online app, “ARTIVIVE”. Bring headphones or earbuds in order to have the full immersive experience.” Inspired by the many places I have traveled to and wish to travel to over the last 2 decades, this collection is all about getting back out and connecting with the rest of the world after the long pause. As a filmmaker and songwriter I have long been a storyteller and my artwork is no different. My paintings now tell an even more complex story than they could before using AR.” Guests will be able to use their smartphones or tablets with headphones to view the 10-30 seconds of AR using the Artivive app and pointing their camera at one of the paintings. The experience can be exhilarating, fun, and even magical.
