For The New Yorker’s Innovators Issue, we worked closely with the artist Christoph Niemann, to bring the front and back covers to life in AR for the very first time. Niemann worked closely with our studio to bring a bustling subway car and city skyline to life, in both 2D and 3D.
The whole experience is rendered real-time and you’re able to move around the city and navigate each element of the city in detail. The project was featured in the Netflix’ documentary series ‘Abstract’ about Niemann and is considered a defining piece of work in the new wave of Augmented Reality. Niemann has hidden a few hidden surprises within the cityscape, why don’t you see if you can find them?
