Augmented Reality Mural Created by DMPS Students

The first augmented reality mural created by DMPS students was installed in Lauridsen Skate Park Monday May 9th in Downtown Des Moines.

The mural, which shows digital animations overlaid on top of reality when viewed through a phone or device, was created by 60 local art students and their DMPS art teacher, Laurie Shriver, who initiated the collaboration between FOCUS and MAC programs. The mural includes three AR components which can be seen by scanning each QR code, clicking the link to EyeJack, then aiming the EyeJack viewer over the trigger images which are the black and white images in the mural. The designer and a painter of the mural as well as their art teacher were present at the installation.
