For Playground Makerspace, Guillaumit has created augmented reality activated masks for children to create, explore, and share with their friends.
Participants will be able to discover the artistic work of Guillaumit like illustrations for children, comic strip and digital works, be introduced to Augmented Reality (how does it work?), and then be able to create original AR masks using templates which are freely customizable and transformable.
Guillaumit is an Artistic Director based in France. His work combines geometric shapes, rigid colours and peculiar cartoon characters. The result is a playful yet meaningful universe. Being the Artistic Director of Bordeaux’s Carnival, he developed an augmented reality app which allows users to interact with 3D animations on costumes and posters, all part of his work. His projects were exhibited in different places such as Paris, London, Berlin, Mexico City.
He has worked with: Centre Pompidou, Orange, Sosh, Sony, Frac Aquitaine, Arte, Agence meanings, Bruit du firgo, Konbini, Le Monde, Bayard, Waiting for the sun, agence Black Candy, CNRS. Guillaumit also works on the Gangpol & Mit project.
