I’ve been a part of the Official Lens Studio Creator program since September 2018. Since then I have been commissioned to create lenses for Nike + Jordan, Lionsgate, and the Snapchat Partner Summit. I also joined the Lens Studio Ambassador program, where my goal is to teach AR to underrepresented communities in my hometown of Austin, TX. I have taught workshops for non-profits, talked on panels about Lens Studio, gave a presentation at the Snapchat Partner Summit, and also did a live demo build at SXSW 2019.

My work with Augmented Reality using Lens Studio examines how the popularity of social apps are shaping the perception and behavior of ourselves, others, and objects around us. I want to create abstract lenses to enable viewers to use my work as a tool to experience my point of view and also interpret and remix it as their own.

 
 
 
Alie Jackson’s augmented-reality-integrated paintings (No. 77): “I think AR is our next communication tool,” says Jackson, whose paintings’ alterations are revealed through Snapchat. “Technology has become this thing that’s shoved down everybody’s throats for marketing and advertising and making money, and basically it can be used for so much more. You have the dog filters, you have the beauty filters – why not flip that and make art expression[s] on a more global level?”
