A collection of AR filters exploring identity issues.
Since May 2020, I have been creating AR filters using Spark AR, a platform for augmented reality experiences through Facebook and Instagram. Here is a collection of 100 days of AR filters where I explore identity issues.
Skills: Spark AR, Blender, Unity, Audition, Ableton Live, Adobe Creative Suite

I experimented with color sampler, audio, particle system to let you draw in your world in a musical way. Talk to have your voice altered. Long press the screen to draw in your physical environment. The color is sampled from your background.
