The Kenai Tapestry (AR-Enabled)

The Kenai Tapestry is a 5'x21' tapestry of the Kenai Fjords National Park from my trips to Alaska.  Its size alludes to historical works like the Bayeux Tapestry.  In addition, makers and bar codes allow people to load an app and look at wildlife and access the National Forestry Service's news about the region.  The merging of Augmented Reality with tapestry is a blending of the digital past and future.  Thanks to the Illinois art Council for funding the project
