As live streaming becomes increasingly popular, how might we as individuals decide when we want to be live-streamed and when we do not?
"A common object"
AR camouflages project is about live streaming and identity. live streaming is a popular trend and cameras are everywhere. Sometimes we feel uncomfortable being captured by other people without permission. AR camouflage addresses the gaze of a smartphone camera, not the unaided eye, and could, for example, conceal a subject from being captured by a camera against their will.
The meaning of camouflages needs to be adapted to urban area situations. To be merged into the surroundings, we need to be "a common object".
How can we be seen as a common object?
Camouflages for the urban area
We don't know when and where someone's camera will suddenly start live streaming.
Some people need AR to act as a protective color to protect themselves from someone's camera. With such AR, you have the power to decide when you want to appear on the camera. Colorful and fancy AR objects may not help you to hide well cause they are eye-catching.
Detect what objects are most common and unobtrusive around you and scan them with your camera. The most important point of making camouflage is to identify the surroundings and find the appropriate protective color for you.
