I was asked about what triggered my dream in the previous post . Here is the article that got me super excited and inspired . However my dream had it’s roots in a visit done last summer to Sfeir Semler Galllery. Bernard Khoury and Walid Raad’s hole in the ground museum proposal was fantastic , honestly if I had a piece of land I would have donated it, with no hesitation, for digging that hole!
My dream might remain a dream but I felt like sharing it …. Btw I’d like to make it very clear I am not endorsing in any way or promoting this company Arcona , far from that! Could be the greatest idea or biggest scam … I don’t think they are the only ones 3D mapping the world and adding an augmented reality layer to it … So many companies are building similar platforms I am not sure which is the best one, let me know if you have any idea!… I just felt like sharing my dream and that coin i designed. :)!
Crossing my fingers for Lebanon to have its locally designed platform to provide artists architects ,advertisers etc or whoever is interested in this amazing core technology. The applications are enormous. It could be the solution to Lebanon’s refugees crisis. Imagine 3D mapping Syria and providing all the refugees with a way of visiting every inch of their hometown , where they can start imagining their future city. Great way to encourage and give them incentive to go back and start a new future don’t you think? BTW AUB is hosting UXB 2018 – Lebanon’s first global UX event.
