How I Used Snapchat to Create an Augmented Reality Experience for a Public Mural

I think Location-based augmented reality experiences are so exciting. For me, it raises questions like, "how might an augmented reality overlay change how people engage with a place or artwork?"

Both Snapchat and Instagram allow people to develop customized augmented reality filters. To explore the idea of augmented reality combined with public art , I developed a public Snapchat filter that was designed to interact with an existing mural inside of the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder.



Cinema4D was used to model, animate, and texture the eyes featured in the augmented reality filter. Lens Studio by Snapchat was used to publish the filter for use on Snapchat.
