Imagine the world differently.

To redeem the future is to also reclaim spaces for poets. AMERICAN DREAMS are language-based public art installations that use augmented reality to project 17-syllable poems (or American Sentences) from the digital world onto the physical world. Our purpose is to transform shared spaces, promote ideas and messages of hope, cultivate a sense of belonging, and offer an opportunity to change, inspire, confront, and write ourselves into the kind of future we all want to see.

To overlay the digital content (or poem) over a live view of your mobile device’s camera (iOS), simply click on the AR link or scan the AR code. Slowly pan your device around as it looks for a horizontal surface to use as anchor. Tap your screen when a surface is found. The content/poem should be directly on top of that surface. There is no need to install an app.

The American Dreams AR Poetry Series officially marks the launch of THE MANA CREATIVE FUTURES PROJECT, a San Francisco Bay Area-based arts program which aims to support, celebrate, mentor, and partner with artists and culture makers, to expand our understanding of what it means to reimagine all of our possibilities.
