Augmented Reality Meets Street Art with MOMO Mural

by Danny OldaPosted on

The street artist known as MOMO has a penchant for abstract, complex, and often huge murals.  MOMO’s pieces are easy to connect with.  Their bright colors match a certain sense of playfulness often hard to find in work of large scale.  MOMO has taken that ability to connect, however, to a new level with the help the design collaboration Re+Public.  This St. Louis, Missouri mural is set to interact with a smart phone app designed by Re+Public.  Once the app recognizes the mural, random pieces of the mural seem to jump into three dimensions.  Users can walk around and through components of MOMO’s work, tap on the pieces to make them disappear and bring up new ones.  MOMO’s mural becomes truly immerse and the connection between the street art and the neighborhood is a much more interactive one.
