The Door, an AR song designed Spectacles

​The Door is an interactive, AR song that changes mood depending on how you respond to it. Using a series of hand gestures, you control how the song expresses itself and (ultimately) affects you. Much of your reality is dependent on your attitude, how you choose to perceive the world. This song is like that. The same song will feel fundamentally different depending on your choices.

Listen, choose, and explore. The power is in your hands.

I was over the moon when I received early access to the Spectacles. These are the newest AR glasses from Snap. They aren’t a commercial product yet and are only being given to a few lucky creators. So, of course, I feel incredibly lucky to be given the opportunity to develop for them. I knew that I wanted to create a project that embraced the unique capabilities that AR glasses offer us. Specifically, being hands-free. I believe that as time goes on (and AR glasses become ubiquitous) hand gestures will replace the buttons that we rely on so heavily. Hopefully, this will lead to more expressive and intuitive ways of interacting with our world. 

One of the greatest gifts that art offers us is the ability to see the world (and our lives) through a new lens. Perspective shift is invaluable and augmented reality art is the perfect tool to create it.
