Daniel Leighton is a contemporary fine artist who merged his filmmaking, story telling and technology background by incorporating augmented reality into his paintings.When viewed through his app, Daniel Leighton A+ AR, his paintings come to life as a narrative accompanying the painting; using animation, film and particle systems to further capture a feeling and story.One example is the painting "On Trial" where anger is evident in the faces and pointing fingers of the characters and the moon looking down at the scene has a single tear. When viewed through Leighton's augmented reality app, the painting catches fire and the only way to put out the fire is to tap on the moon which begins to cry therefore putting out the flames with the tears. This piece is about anger in the form of blame and judgment, and shows how when feelings are expressed, anger subsides.Another example is a painting called "A Substance Called Understanding." Through the augmented reality and interactivity (tapping) the room fills up with hearts and the sound of many, layered voices saying "I love you".Leighton has a total of nine paintings which incorporate augmented reality. His exhibit "permission to enter" which was held at the Los Angeles Arts Association's Gallery 825, from October 17 to November 20, 2015, received rave reviews, and introduced augmented reality to a new audience.If you like this app, please leave us a review or rating as it will help us get more people to see it.
