Pins

 

A project featuring augmented reality pinbacks which use domestic paintings by Mary Cassatt to trigger images of artwork by children. Cassatt, who has at times been controversially left out of art historical accounts for her contributions to impressionism is alleged by some historians, to have forgone motherhood to pursue her artistic pactice. Using augmented reality software the images appear to exist in the same space as the wearer. A meditation on creative production and anxiety over the choices women are asked to make, the pins allow anyone to participate in the socially significant gesture of sharing art by children online.
