COLORBOX is an AR activated mural born to help bridge the gap between the intangibility of digital works and the viewer. Traditionally, art is presented as static images solely made
for display. By incorporating AR, COLORBOX creates interactivity through the traditional
viewing process.

COLORBOX is a series of works stemmed from ink line drawings, which later became an
experimental, augmented, mixed-media collection. COLORBOX started as an exercise in
spontaneity and improvisation with line, shape, and color. Being able to improvise and
discover in the digital process (Photoshop + VR/AR creation) was unexpected as these
mediums typically have such a learning curve that it's often difficult to create something
unplanned. This series is a result of that state-of-play, much like the casual creative
freedom that comes with a coloring book. One can choose to stay in the line or go beyond.
