JR: The Chronicles of San Francisco
WOLFGANG provided the official book AR App for the exhibition JR: The Chronicles of San Francisco by the world-renowned artist, TED Prize winner, Oscar nominee, and one of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2018, JR.
“Making Art Come Alive” Feature by Apple
On the 24th of May 2019 Apple published a long Feature of JR and his “JR:murals” App.
“The coolest part? Using the JR:murals app, you can point one of the exhibit’s specially outfitted iPads at any of 1,206 faces to hear that person’s story in their own word.” Read the full Feature here.
“In 2018, he brought his legendary photo truck to San Francisco. More than 1,000 citizens posed for his camera and told their stories, and JR compiled their portraits into an astounding photographic mural, a portrait of the city. To be installed at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, it is the latest of his ground-breaking and deeply compelling art projects.
This rich volume features all the individual portraits and selected stories alongside behind-the-scenes photos, a foreword by Neal Benezra, and an introduction by JR. A removable poster showcases the entire mural. For JR’s legions of fans and anyone who loves or lives in San Francisco, this book reveals art and urban community from a new angle.
Hardcover, 160 pages, 2019.” SF MoMA, 2019.
