Step Into Poetry

Date: 10/25/2017

Client: City of Eugene

We developed the first of the “Step Into” series called Step Into Poetry in the fall of 2017. This was an early collaboration with Jeff Petry from the City of Eugene. Along with the City of Eugene and a wonderful non profit called Wordcrafters, local poets submitted their work and winners were selected. We then took the winners work and added AR or Augmented Reality content to each. We also developed a series of posters that were placed in the local parking garage.

After downloading our free app called Glimmer XP, users were able to point their phones are the posters and hear the poets recite their work. We added visuals to emphasize key elements of each poem. We brought the poems to life through the magic of AR. We hope you enjoy!
