Everyone has hidden talent. You’re more than your day-job, your daily commute, and your resume. You’re not just another face in the crowd. You’re creative. Maybe you were never encouraged. Never shown how to get there. Maybe you’ve forgotten. AAU is here to remind you that everyone is an artist.
Our idea People are doing art everyday without recognizing it. People have talent— but don’t realize it. We’ll let them discover their potential by making a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. We’ll create tools that reveal people’s hidden talent by recording their creative movements. Through this campaign, people will have the experience of making art and sharing it with their friends.
The hidden talent tools Widget + iPhone App + Facebook Webcam App
Widget People use their computers everyday. If the screen is the canvas, then the mouse is the brush. Weâ€™ll create a widget that lets people capture their brushes and keep a journal of their mouse movements on their computers. People can review their mouseâ€™s journal on their computer anytime. They can print their works of art on T-shirts for free and share their art with friends.
iPhone App We use our hands in creative ways without realizing it. Our iPhone Application records casual everyday hand movements and transforms them into inspired work of art.
Facebook Webcam App Weâ€™ll create a webcam application that people can use on Facebook. Our app will transform their hand movements into art that they can share with friends.
Bus Shelter People read or doing stuff when they are waiting for the bus. Weâ€™ll create an interactive screen that locate peopleâ€™s hand automatically and record their hand movements.
