Tra Art is a wordplay on "trà", meaning tea in Vietnamese, and "art".
The exhibition, through mentions about the Shan Tuyet mountainous tea, portrays the wild beauty of North Vietnam nature and the spiritually rich cultures.
In this exhibition, I collaborated with another animator, Marcus Bowler, to create a series of 10 artworks that corporate the technology of augmented reality. People were invited to download the app Zappar to their smartphones and use it to scan my drawings to reveal our hidden animation. Their reactions were gold. It was a great experience!
The exhibition was made possible by generous support from our organizer Insitut Français, L’Espace Hanoi and our sponsors EcoLink, Minh Home, Fin Ho, and Ford.
