International 3D/AR Chalk artist Anthony Cappetto led an Art for After Hours team (Shawn McCann, Wendy Stum) in the first public exhibition of 3D 4D chalk art and augmented reality (AR) blended together anywhere in the world at the Sarasota Chalk Festival in Sarasota, FL. The 3D 4D/AR chalk artwork, 'Visions of Cambodia' measured 30 by 40 feet in size and took the team approximately 150 hours to create onsite and several weeks of coordination for the successful combination of the 3D chalk design and the 4D (AR) effects. Special thanks to our friends at Daqri for the 4D (AR) assistance, making our concept work so well.

'A Sound of Thunder...' (2014) 3D Designer and lead artist Anthony Cappetto, with thanks to the Art for After Hours 3D Team of Ron Hawkins, Nancy Garza, and Wendy Stum. Immersive combined panels of 16 feet wide by 30 feet deep on ground with vertical panel of 16 feet wide by 8 feet high completed in a week's time.
Conceptual in nature, Cappetto was inspired by the classic science fiction short story by Ray Bradbury, and the use of a 'light bridge' containing the scientifically accepted (and debated) time travel energy displacement equation. The science of course contributed to lots of artistic license but lots of fun! 3D 4D Street Artist Anthony Cappetto of Art for After Hours (pictured in NASA astronaut costume) as a time traveler in the Cretaceous Period, famously stepping off the light path and on a butterfly - changing history in the process...
