Weird Cuts uses the procedure of cutting and assembling to augment the space and to explore the poetics of AR with collages. Created with the support of Google Arts & Culture.
The app consists of two modes, cutout mode, and collage mode. In cutout mode, users are encouraged to walk around and collect a wide range of different materials via photographs which are cut into shapes.
In collage mode, users can assemble and arrange their cutouts in 3d space by moving and tapping the screen.
A user may also make adjustments of the shapes while holding down their finger and moving it up, down, left or right to rotate and scale.
The output is a multi-dimensional work made from combinations of collected and found objects and spacial improvisation.
The inspirations come largely from artists such as Hannah Hoch, David Hockney, Gego (Gertrud Louise Goldschmidt), Ruth Asawa, Jean Arp, to name a few.
