Augmented Mountain

Since 2011 I have been co-producing augmented reality apps with Augmented Mountain – a NY/California based new media company. My partners are Mitch Miller and Phoenix Toews. Together we have released eight apps on the Mac app store: Pyrite; Outer Spaces;Oyster City App; Bubbles AR; Infinite Structures; Silicon Monuments; Sound Graffiti; and Pratt CATT. Outer Spaces was made in collaboration with the Scope Art Fair. Infinite Structures was made in collaboration with Raphaele Shirley, Liubo Borissov and the Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute. Sound Graffiti was made in collaboration with CNNCTD+. Pratt CATT was made with digital arts graduate students at Pratt, as part of a class led by Phoenix, Mitch and me.
