collaborations with Google Arts & Culture
For centuries, creative people have turned tools into art, or come up with inventions to change how we think about the world around us. Today you can explore the intersection of art and technology through two new experiments, created by artists in collaboration with the Google Arts & Culture Lab, only recently announced at Google I/O 2019.
Created by artists Molmol Kuo & Zach Lieberman, Weird Cuts lets you make collages using augmented reality. You can select one of the cutouts shown in the camera screen to take a photo in a particular shape. The resulting cut-out can then be copy-pasted into the space around you, as seen through your camera’s eye. Download the app, available on iOS and Android, at g.co/weirdcuts.
