"ReWildAR" Augmented Reality Installation, Tamiko Thiel and /p, 2021

"ReWildAR" AR installation, Tamiko Thiel and /p, 2021. Commissioned by the Smithsonian Institution for the Arts and Industry Building



ReWildAR is an augmented reality installation that offers a vision of how Washington D.C. can be rewilded to create a thriving, sustainable environment for nature in the city. Washington D.C. is already a city with a surprising amount of wildlife: can this be enhanced, to turn the city into a wildlife corridor that connects rather than blocks the flow of wildlife of all forms through the city?

This project specifically focuses on the symbiotic relationships between native flowers and insects that are necessary to preserve a diverse and healthy natural environment. Additionally, since the climate in D.C. will become more like that of the states much further south, it features plants and insects that are endemic from the D.C. area all the way down to southern Georgia and northern Florida, and that therefore have a chance of surviving the rapid climate change to which we are subjecting our planet.
