Last October, I showcased original artwork from my new self-published, augmented reality, children's book: The Shadow People Are Here (available now). The Shadow People, themselves, have long been vilified by the general public because nobody knows anything about them and nobody has ever really seen them up close. That's all changing because you can see them right now at Riverside Art Museum (RAM) and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). I'll explain...
For ages, people have told stories of boogeymen and monsters that lurk in the dark, scary places beyond the world we know. Stories about monsters that eat children or otherwise terrorize humans.
This could not be farther from the truth. What people have always THOUGHT they've seen, were actually Shadow People. With the free mobile app Aurasma, you can finally see them clearly.
The Shadow People are playful, lighthearted, and just as curious about you as you are about them. And they love to explore...
The video above shows them hanging out at the Riverside Art Museum. It wasn't be long until they found their way into the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
Right now, until the end of the Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters exhibit (November 27, 2016), you can see the Shadow People inhabiting some of Guillermo's classic movie monster statues. Take a look at the instructions and guide below to find out how to see the Shadow People at LACMA and RAM. Enjoy!
