Through the Mobile Looking Glass"
-> Re: "We AR in MoMA"
"Among the highlights of the virtual show is Tamiko Thiel’s Art Critic Face Matrix, a floating array of
white faces with open mouths, which is opportunely
juxtaposed with live screaming interpretations of Yoko
Ono’s 1961 Voice piece for soprano in the mezzanine."
Re: "Bushwick AR Intervention"
... it’s the playful floating works inspired by the simple
pleasure of visual juxtaposition, such as Tamiko Thiel’s
ad hoc Eddie Murphy and Mae West - Return to Bushwick
(itself an homage to Magritte’s Golconda) ... that
remind us of the magic. When the ghosts are all around
us, AR lets us see them, confirming their presence and
validating their existence."
