Supervisor, Drive Studios
Louise Baker Lee is a supervisor, digital artist, animator, and AR app developer at Drive Studios. She has recently helped to build and develop three AR apps through Drive: 4th Wall, 14th Factory AR, and Eminem Augmented. Lee has worked in visual effects on countless music videos and commercials and spent twelve years as a supervisor and 3D artist in pre and post-visualization for blockbuster Hollywood films such as the Amazing Spider-Man, the Hunger Games, and Transformers. She graduated from Yale University in 1999 with a BA in History of Art and is a proud mother of twin girls.
How does a fine artist end up working in AR? Can AR democratize access to art? Does the app user “cross over” and become a de facto curator? 4th Wall app founder Nancy Baker Cahill addresses her evolution from making drawings in analog, to creating her own brushstrokes in VR, to witnessing people harness their own creativity by exploding the notions of “gallery” and “museum” and enabling users to place her artwork (and studio!) anywhere in the world.
