An exhibition by Julie Stephen Chheng and Thomas Pons.
Uramado explores Augmented Reality in paper creations, by the way of a journey proposed to the audience. Through the screen of their smartphones, viewers can project themselves in fantasy or dreamy worlds ... which will suddenly come to life.
The exhibition is two projects in augmented reality started during the artists' residency at Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto:
Animated Chronicles is an animated diary about day to day life in Japan.
Uramado is a series of augmented pop-ups with virtual contents inspired by Japanese windows. At night, these pop-ups become little lanterns and reveals other animations in augmented reality.
* Thomas Pons is an animation director and Julie Stephen Chheng a designer. They are both graduates from Les Arts Décoratifs de Paris.
