AUGMENTED PAINTING

Augmented painting: Elli Maanpää 2019 // 3 paintings with 2D animation

Augmented painting combines acrylic painting with 2D animation trough augmented reality. They are inspired by Maanpää’s Finnish roots. Finnish idioms are famous for their pessimistic undertone. Like for example “Whoever is happy should hide it.”

Maybe it’s time to give the idioms a second viewpoint. What if being the “Painter of the skyline” wouldn’t mean a pointless dreamer but she who points out the beauty in our world.

This was my thesis project in Animation in Turku Arts Academy. For animation I used TVPaint and After Effects and for Augmented Reality I used Arilyn Manager. To see the paintings you must download the free Arilyn App from the App Store or Google Play.
