Angelique Anderson installation at FiveMyles
On view: July 22 – August 7, 2022
Opening: Friday, July 22, 5:30-8pm
Angelique E. Anderson’s ‘AUGMENTED PATTERNS’ is a series of digital prints, installed in the FiveMyles Plus/Space, that merges art with technology. Utilizing the Augmented Reality (AR) platform, Anderson creates interactive immersive experiences within each print, inviting audiences to explore and interact with images that come alive through animated abstracts of geometrics, colorful shapes and textures triggered by the viewer’s mobile phone and an app.
Angelique’s inspiration for this show is based on the theme of how truths are being augmented by the status quo. The feature work is ‘Queen Charlotte.’ “I am fascinated by how much anger, controversy and denial about black & biracial ancestors in the British royal family, in spite of such well documented recorded legacy of the black lineage in the royal family. Queen Charlotte, in 18th century England, was the second black English queen. She was the grandmother of Queen Victoria and is the great-great-great-great-grandmother of the current Queen Elizabeth II. This fact ties perfectly into my theme of Augmented Reality: a process of overlaying something unreal on top of something real, to cover up, change, alter, or enhance reality.
