iPad Painter Incorporates Augmented Reality Into Landscapes of Human Emotions
Daniel Leighton combines his backgrounds in filmmaking, technology, storytelling and chronic illness (Crohn’s Disease) and paints the internal world of human emotions. His iPad paintings are brought to life with Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR). Through his app, Daniel Leighton Art + AR, his paintings come alive with film, animation, sound and interactivity, with the user’s own device. Leighton synthesizes mediums old and new with raw, emotional content, creating a space in which to process physical and emotional responses to the constant stimuli that is now ubiquitous.
