Paintwork: A Glimpse of Our Augmented Reality Future

by Kenny Hoeschen

New Scientist’s Arc Magazine and science fiction author Tim Maughan have produced Paintwork, a short film based on Maughan’s short story of the same name (available online here). Set in Bristol, England, the film follows augmented reality graffiti artist 3Cube as she illegally transforms an all-too familiar advertising billboard into a work of high tech street art, and poses questions about the relationships between technology, advertising and the control of public spaces.
