Artist Felice Grodin took us behind the scenes of her South Beach studio and chatted with us about her beginnings as an artist, sketches, and how her new augmented reality (AR) exhibition, Felice Grodin: Invasive Species, connects to climate change.
“In terms of the content, I think it’s important that the public begins to think about what’s going on, and I think that they are and they do, and I think in a way it’s sometimes more interesting to do it in a creative way rather than just to say this or that about the environment,” Grodin says. “I think the show doesn’t judge, it just kind of suggests what the future might be like.”
With the help of Apple’s augmented reality ARKit platform and Cuseum, Grodin animated her work into digital renderings to conceptually fuse them with the museum’s architecture. Visitors will be able to view her digital works on the PAMM App through April 21, 2018.
The PAMM App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPad. iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, and newer.
Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is organized by PAMM Assistant Curator Jennifer Inacio, managed by PAMM AR + Art Project Manager Monica Mesa and overseen by PAMM Deputy Director of Marketing and Public Engagement Christina Boomer Vazquez. The project is funded by Knight Foundation.
