American Dreams

Imagine the world differently.

AMERICAN DREAMS, a project by Mana Creative Futures, are language-based public art installations that use augmented reality to overlay digital content on a supported mobile device’s (iOS) camera. This project aims 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. Examples of featured content are 17-syllable poems (or American Sentences) on the theme of our possible futures. To view the digital content (or poem) in real time, simply click on the AR link, or visit The Mana Creative Futures Project for more info. Send us an email to participate!
