4th Wall app invites you to walk and teleport through:
- Nancy Baker Cahill’s LA studio in 360 degrees
- Four of her original Virtual Reality drawings translated into Augmented Reality
- A hologram of Baker Cahill discussing her work.
Updated features include:
“Coordinates” is a new, ongoing, collaborative public AR art exhibition which
invites the viewer to be physically present at specific locations. When viewers
select this feature, based on their location, they will be directed toward artworks –
translated into AR-- created by artists that activate the historically, politically or
culturally significant sites they have chosen. “Coordinates” aims to inspire
thoughtful dialogue and expand our understanding of public art.
Artworks may include sound so make sure to check for the sound button on the
right hand menu when observing an artwork on site.
“Coordinates” will be updated frequently and will regularly include new artists,
artworks, and locations.
More on the “Coordinates” project:
Invited collaborating artists choose their work of art to be translated into AR,
where they would like it placed for its conceptual or historical significance, and/ or
its relationship to the artwork itself. Each artist is credited as their image appears
• The “News” feature
News will note new artists’ artworks and sites as they appear in “Coordinates.”
Artists and locations will also be updated regularly on 4thwallapp.org.
• Additional VR/AR drawings update:
Users can pinch or expand Nancy Baker Cahill’s dimensional drawings and
hologram to scale, rotate, place and record them in the environment of their
choice. They can walk and teleport through her LA studio in 360 degrees.
Camera and video buttons allow viewers to take photos and record all AR
experiences in any context, anywhere in the world. Photos and videos are
automatically stored in viewers’ iPhoto collections when “Access to Photos” is
enabled. Viewers are encouraged to share across social media platforms using
the hashtags: #4thwallapp #Coordinates #4thwallcoordinates and any #AR
iteration they choose.
Tapping on one Baker Cahill’s AR dimensional drawings, the Studio, or the Artist
button in the menu, viewers will be prompted to gently move their phone left to right to place scene. Within seconds, the AR experience will appear wherever the
viewer has aimed their camera.
To teleport into and through the studio, place finger on floor or where you want to
teleport until starburst icon appears, then tap icon. Viewers can also walk through
every AR experience offered.
To mute hologram or Coordinates sound, turn off phone’s sound button or tap the
“home” icon in the bottom right corner. If you cannot hear hologram or
Coordinates sound, turn phone’s sound button on.
Enjoy the app in portrait or landscape mode!
FROM THE ARTIST:
"I am excited to expand the 4th Wall app AR public art platform to include fellow
artists I admire for their topical and rigorous work, who have chosen where they
would like a specific artwork to be experienced in situ. I invite viewers to visit their
specific sites and experience their works in AR.
We hope 4th Wall inspires a new understanding and engagement with AR as
viewer-driven “public art” and democratizes access to fine art in general,
available to almost anyone with a smartphone or tablet.
As an artist, I am always looking to expand and engage a larger and more
diverse audience. Our hope is that viewers all over the world respond to the
drawings and harness their own creativity to place them in all kinds of contexts.
Art truly can be anywhere.
We are at the beginning of what is possible. With Drive Studios’ Creative Director
Rich Lee and the innovative team at Drive Studios, I believe we have engaged
the medium in a thoughtful and responsible way, and my hope is that others will
do the same." – Nancy Baker Cahill
