Imagine a towering fusion of original art, emerging technology, and digital media, soaring nearly 1000’ high, yet held in the palm of your hand. This pilot AR installation is a tribute to The New School’s role in catalyzing social change, and as an homage to New York City as a global center for towers of knowledge, creative freedom, enterprise, and in-gathering. Activated in and around Union Square Park in NYC, its AR elements offer new ways to view themes of universal human rights, fundamental freedoms, collaborative innovation, creative expression, and intellectual inquiry. Created by artist William T. Ayton, in collaboration with The New School’s Global Catalyst Senior Fellow, Diana Ayton-Shenker, New Babel was incubated in coordination with TNS XReality Center, produced by Global Momenta and other supporting partners.
