The "Boon" series is a participatory augmented reality (AR) artwork that generates a virtual "aura" around a person wearing a specially designed pin button. Three different versions of these button Boons were launched at the Moving Image Art Fair, February 27, 2017. These invisible body works offer contemporary Dada relief and protection against very bad psycho-political conditions staining our consciousness these days. While an individual button in a series cost only $5.00, it will generate the full artwork with an easily downloaded public application called Blippar. The work calls for the relationship between two participants, one to wear the button and one to view and capture it with a cell phone or tablet.
