AWE was amazing this year, and I got to spend some time on the show floor with Kevin Kunze (Hopscotch Interactive) getting to know the exhibitors. Besides seeing friends, this is my favorite part! Before their big win was announced, we had a great conversation with Ed Harrison, Co-Founder of Under the Skin of Endangered Animals, and learned all about their work creating beautiful screenprints that do more than just decorate your walls with cool prints, but also educate and support preventing the extinction of the world's most vulnerable species...think Pangolins, Orangutans, Elephants, Vaquita Porpoises, and so many more (around 40 right now).
Ed and his brother James are the REAL DEAL and their work is taking them around the world to research and better understand wildlife conservation. It is no surprise that they were awarded the grand prize of $100,000 at this year's AUGGIE Awards for Under the Skin/Between Two Worlds. Good job judges!
Enjoy this closer look at their work, and for more information head over to their website to see all of their work and how augmented reality is a key part of the story. Ori Inbar Tom Furness Michael Boland AWE Sonya Haskins Maddie Callander Marco DeMiroz #conservation #augmentedreality #research
