Hart’s decorative patterns are in fact also computer codes – augmented “tags” functioning like QR – that permit users to see her fantastical animations embedded in them through Hart’s Looking Glass augmented app. Through the Looking Glass, one can glimpse a world of pulsing invisible flowers covered with animated graphics culled from Internet signage, computer code, and emoji graphics. Programmed by the artist, her multimedia craft objects are metaphors that unfold, using computer-vision to reveal “magical” layers of new information.

Wallpaper and ceramic tiles were specifically created as décor for a new kind of “virtual-reality” lounge, a seductive environment made for viewing Hart’s Flower Matrix VR world. She is building another liminal space, but this one in the real world where one might don VR goggles and view her parallel VR one: a mixed reality fantastical architecture that randomly grows and decays using an esthetic of fakeness where technology has replaced nature, both sugary sweet and chemically toxic in equal measures.
