"Brush the Sky" (2015) is a mixed reality Japanese calligraphy gallery installation and public art project
This video highlights the gallery installation of Midori Kono Thiel's unique Japanese calligraphy, deconstructed across multiple mylar layers to create abstracted wall hangings, with an augmented reality layer by Tamiko Thiel.
"Brush the Sky" installation in the Wing Luke Museum includes the following artworks, overlaid with an augmented reality layer that ties them together into a "total installation":
- Fine art prints of "Brush the Sky" augmented reality calligraphy at four sites in Seattle
- Japanese calligraphy on mylar: Past, Present, Future ( 過去 – 現代 – 未来 ) Kako – Gendai – Mirai
- Japanese calligraphy on mylar: Amerika Monogatari ( アメリカ 物語 ) An American Story
- Japanese calligraphy on mylar: Nai Gai ( 内外 ) Outside Inside
- iPad with an animated augmented reality layer of all the calligraphy in the gallery
