Blessing (working title) is an Augmented Reality application for smart phones… And who doesn’t need a blessing now and again? The application augments your camera feed with a virtual character who blesses you with gesture and audio-visual shower.
The application was inspired by the blessing of a Buddhist monk, it invokes a relationship with mother earth, but makes no other spiritual assumptions, and has no religious affiliation.
Blessing showed at the Buffalo Infringement Festival, 2018
