Sky written messages in virtual airplane trails.

“Fishing in the Sky” is a virtual public artwork created for the new park at the Boston Convention and Events Center. The work uses a custom mobile application, Skywrite AR, to create and view large-scale phrases in augmented reality vapor trails located high above the South Boston park. The texts for this project appear as common sayings rewritten to evoke an interplay of the area’s history, its economic aspirations and possible future sea change. New texts will be added daily as previous entries accumulate in the surrounding skies. For special events at the BCEC Park, participants will be able to use the mobile application to draw and write imagery to add to the project.
