Lauren Cason | three.swords

Lauren is an XR Creative Director at Meow Wolf, based in Santa Fe. Before engaging in AR filters, she worked as a prototyper in Apple and an artist in games such as Monument Valley 2 or Luna (read more), among others.

I love finding inspiration in other art forms – painting, sculpture, ceramics. I created a series last year of filters using pieces from different open access artworks from the metropolitan museum of art collection. When I worked on indie video games, I would pull palettes from classical paintings all the time, and I love bringing that breadth and history of aesthetics to digital art forms. I also love finding ways to bring AR into real world spaces. Snap Lens Studio has amazing capabilities when it comes to environments, and I’m really excited to explore those more this year! – Lauren Cason

Ben Scott | Mavici

Aoepng 青絵

Aoepng is a Japanese non-verbal communication artist who wants to bring joy to the world with her lenses.

In many of my AR pieces, the AR switches according to people’s facial expressions, such as opening their mouths, raising their hands, or lowering their eyebrows.
I am also good at making a mysterious AR experience using real-world objects such as roadside signs and manholes as markers (sample 1, sample 2, sample 3). The inspiration for these works is influenced by movies and cartoons I watched as a child. I hope to continue to publish my latest AR work on Twitter. – Aoepng

All my effects are built around music. I think music brings extra life and depth to a filter. I’m really inspired by music, whenever I hear a song I can always think of cool visuals to go with it. Its a blast to work directly with music labels or artists to create effects for their songs. – Benjamin Paruzynski
