In my work I often make use of video feedback and recursion. Virtual phone is a world facing AR effect that features a big floating smartphone with an ever repeating copy of the live camera stream. For my lens ‘enter the void’ I wanted to create an AR effect that removes the user from the camera view and blends them in with their surroundings. A second mode is accessible via screen tap. – Aaron Jablonski

I made this germ stream lens during an artist residency at The Line Hotel in Austin during the coronavirus quarantine. It was really interesting because I had this hotel to myself and very few guests and staff for some of the time. I couldn’t stop thinking about all of these invisible germs that were surrounding me and how they were occupying this huge space what would normally be busy in the middle of tourism season. This lens was the result of trying to imagine an abstract representation of these invisible “ germ streams” that were floating and moving around in space. – Alie Jackson
