MFA Member Anna Fine Foer
Anna has recently been exploring the world of augmented reality and how it effects the real world around us. This has inspired a new project for her:
“For the past 2 months or so I have been working on collages about how augmented reality meets the real world. Searching for Pokemon was all the rage this past summer, while, at the same time, there was an attempted coup in Turkey and a terrorist attack in Nice. I want to know what this means for our “civilization” and offer my version, in collage.”
~Anna Fine Foer
