Overview

Boston Cyberarts commissioned four internationally acclaimed artists; John Craig Freeman, Kristin Lucas, Will Pappenheimer and Tamiko Thiel, to create 8 Augmented Reality (AR) sculptures for The Augmented Landscape, an outdoor exhibition that took place at the National Park Service’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site.
Inspired by Salem’s unique history and ecology, the eight artworks delved into issues as diverse as East-West relations, New England’s maritime connections with Russia, Japan & China, American idealism, the discord between globalism and isolationism, piracy as warfare, as well as the effects of climate change, global warming and rising waters.
