Shooting Blanks: The Art Of Half-Cocked

Presented by Houndstooth Cottage

Art Basel – Miami, FL

Half-Cocked was released in 1994. It tells the story of a group of friends who steal a van full of music equipment and pretend to be a band in order to stay on the road. It is a movie that meant a lot to me and really influenced my taste in music. All these years later I am truly honored to be a part of this exhibit by using our augmented reality app to enhance the experience. Thank you Michael, Suki, & Tony!

Shooting Blanks : The Art of Half-Cocked featured work by the filmmakers Suki Hawley & Michael Galinsky, as well as past and current work from the cast, crew and artists connected to the scene documented in the film. Thanks to Tony Kapel for all your hard work! View the full list of artists.

...are we by YOUPEOPL

St. Louis, MO

Our friends YOUPEOPL contacted us about their debut EP ‘…are we’ with St. Louis-based art and music collective, FarFetched. They wanted to use our app as a way to offer their fans something different. We thought, why not take your album artwork and allow your fans to stream your EP before it is released?

The band, led by Chan Maurice Evans and Brandon Mason – two STL rock musicians, has a unique twist that mixes their rock, post-punk and noise-rock backgrounds with more ethereal textures, trading grind and grit for waves and cascades.

Anti-Gravity Project

Augmented reality art & murals

 Melbourne, FL

The Anti-Gravity Project is a non-profit art installation launched by local artists, designers, and community members. The project aims to elevate their outdoor spaces, generate positive community energy, and showcase the Eau Gallie Arts District as a growing epicenter of innovation on the Space Coast.
In November & December 2017, international and local muralists took over walls and outer spaces in the Eau Gallie Arts District during a 10-day supernova of creativity on Florida’s Space Coast. A few artists wanted to give augmented reality art a try so we helped a few of the artists by making their murals come to life by use of our mobile app.

If you find yourself in the area, try scanning some of the buildings and see if you can locate the murals synced with the Soundwave Art™ mobile app. If not, just give it a try by scanning the mural located on the right.
