"The Art of Living" is an interactive Augmented Reality installation by artist Ziv Schneider, exploring the idea of simulating learning subjects through living, and particularly the use of practice cottages in the early 20th century to teach home making.
Inspired by a class titled "Household Arts For Students From Other Lands" taught at Teacher's College in 1923, the artist Ziv Schneider puts her own avatar into a reconstruction of a model home, walking the viewer through her findings.
The installation included 5 "classes" and an introduction that guides the user through the house virtually through a downloadable app or pre-loaded iPads.
"The Art of Living" opened March 5 2018 and was on view through June of 2018.
The Art of Living was also on display at the Macy Gallery at Teachers College from June - July 2018.
