Augmented reality art..

Chris O'Shea, an artist with latent fantasies about growing into a giant and teasing, then destroying, the people of Liverpool, England, has a new installation! It's a live video billboard that teases, then destroys, the people of Liverpool, England.

Hand From Above encourages us to question our normal routine when we often find ourselves rushing from one destination to another. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, we are reminded of mythical stories by mischievously unleashing a giant hand from the BBC Big Screen. Passers by will be playfully transformed. What if humans weren’t on top of the food chain? Crush your head?

The effect is playful and charming for adults, though it may cause minor metaphysical crises in small children and pets. For art!

  1. This brings me great GREAT joy. Probably TOO much!

  2. What, exactly, do you like about it!

    Let me instigate. The art, the science, the technology? Probably the human interaction<, the existence within, the existence without?

    You're gonna have to clarify, because at this point I'm speaking difficultly.
