Once upon a time, Jim Riswold was a poorly behaved creative director and partner at advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy. These days he is a fake artist living in Oregon’s Portland with nobody and has conned Augen Gallery to represent him. He has yet to contract typhus.  You will not like him.

Eric Dayton

As a lifelong artist, entrepreneur, and gallery owner, Eric's approach to visual storytelling transcends medium. His deep connection to his work takes the form of surreal landscapes, introspective figurative works, and now digital pieces made specifically for AR.

I’m excited about augmented reality because unlike virtual reality, which closes the world out, AR allows individuals to be present in the world but hopefully allows an improvement on what’s happening presently.

Tim Cook


Now, imagine if your artwork could express not only the singularity — the captured moment of the human condition, but the entire journey. With Augmented Reality, your canvas has the power to become a story.


Next we’re looking at how do we make that even more immersive, and how do we allow more people to have a shared experience together in a public space.
