A series of augmented reality (webAR) postcards were designed as mementoes for the graduating MFA class of 2021. Centered around themes Voices, Culture Studies, Education + Action, Fresh Approaches, The Future, Crafted Tales, the postcards aims to showcase student work while directing traffic to students’ portfolio websites and their respective projects on the thesis show website.
The project is the result of collaboration across the thesis show organizing team, the graduating MFA students, and the AR Postcards team. The process involved brainstorming for AR concepts; exploring limitations and possibilities, prototyping with A-Frame and AR.js; integration with Design team assets, and Postcard team; final development.
