This is the kind of augmented reality I like! Not that virtual stuff. I also love the fact that it’s New York. In my mind it’s also a performance. I guess technically this is photography, but I can’t help but view a lot of art in terms of it’s performative aspects. Either way I find the end result visually interesting and thought provoking.
I think I see a theme developing here, compare and contrast with Liu Bolin. The two are somewhat opposites, yet interestingly the end result is similar. Check out more Fred Lebain samples at DesignBoom or see some more of his work at his personal site.
