John Craig Freeman, EEG AR: Things We Have Lost
EEG AR: Things We Have Lost is a Los Angeles-based location specific virtual public art project for iPhone, iPad, or Android. The project introduces 3D virtual objects at precise GPS coordinates around the city using augmented reality software. Artist John Craig Freeman interviewed people on the streets of Los Angeles about things, tangible or intangible, that they have lost, creating a database of lost objects. Freeman's work seeks to expand the notion of public space by exploring how digital networked technology is transforming our sense of place.
