About this app

It’s been nearly 10 years since Shepard Fairey’s last solo exhibition in his hometown of Los Angeles and the iconic HOPE imagery he created for then Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Now for the very first time Shepard Fairey's work has been transformed into a virtual reality experience. experience his most ambitious show to date, aptly titled DAMAGED.

In this unprecedented political climate, Fairey’s message has changed from hope to purpose: “DAMAGED is an honest diagnosis, but diagnosis is the first step to recognising and solving problems. "I definitely think that art can be part of the solution because it can inspire people to look at an issue they might otherwise ignore or reject.”

DAMAGED also takes aim at another hindrance to reformative communication: social media. For what should be the most meaningful platform for important discussion ever created, discourse has fallen secondary to self-indulgence and celebrity:
“Even prior to the election, I’ve been troubled by the social media mentality of ‘construct your own reality’ in superficial terms, at least. The internet and social media are valuable for democratization, but as Marshall McLuhan warned with his—”the medium is the message”—the rapid pace and temporary nature of social media can lead to throwaway approaches from the consumer and the creator…”

* Listen to over 100 minutes of exclusive narration by Shepard Fairey.
* Interact with hundreds of artworks, including world premier exclusives.
* A full three dimensional photo realistic representation of his Damaged show.

Join Shepard Fairey in this state of the art virtual reality experience, where he will share his thoughts and methods behind his artwork.

The optional Augmented Reality feature of the app involves image analysis, which requires a clear image. The AR quality is reduced when the camera can’t see details, such as when the camera is pointed at a blank wall, or when the room is too dark. Excessive motion reduces tracking quality as well.
Use the AR feature in a well lit room and move your device gently to improve tracking quality.

Love the app. It's amazing to see so many pieces. Love the detail on each and the audio explanations. The only thing I wish it had was a work on or build your own piece where all the spray cans are. I thought you could design your own. Would be an epic addition and take the app to the next level.

It will not open correctly on my phone, I'm bumbed? The way other people are commenting seems like I'm missing out on a cool experience? I see the beginning with the name and then my screen goes black with two different colored squares at the bottom of my screen? Maybe my phone can't handle this app? I would like to get a print and it is a killer one, I dig Shepard Fairey, but I'm going to have to uninstall this app. It's just not working on my phone. Maybe my phone is Damaged!

Very impressed with the DAMAGED app! With not being able to see the show in person, with this app I can now and enjoy at my own pace. With the ability to go to each piece and get detailed info on each of them. And bonus content narrated by Shepard Fairey explaining various pieces in the show. Love it.
