The provider of the VR/AR/MR creative platform STYLY (https://styly.cc), the joint project of Psychic VR Lab (Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo), PARCO Corporation (headquartered in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) and LOFTWORK Co. NEWVIEW has released NEWVIEW CYPHER #Goods, the sixth edition of NEWVIEW CYPHER, a genre-specific xR expression community, and has begun inviting artists and creators to participate. 

*xR is a generic term for technologies that combine the real world and virtual world, such as VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality) and MR (mixed reality) to provide new experiences.

NEWVIEW CYPHER is a community activity in which creative expressions of all genres are expressed in a freestyle xR style. The sixth edition of the project, NEWVIEW CYPHER #Goods, will explore new forms of expression by combining AR with objects, such as t-shirts, stickers, posters, mugs and figures, and will develop community activities that will be incorporated into the works. We are now accepting applications for artists and creators who want to explore expressions that increase the value of objects through the creation of AR goods. They will create works of art through meetups and workshops.

AR goods that expand the worldview of products not only enhance the value of real goods, but also provide users with new experiences that have not been available until now. We aim to create a culture of AR goods with artists and creators.

More experimental objects x AR expressions are also explored with artists! Collaborative goods also produced to explore new uses

In addition to t-shirts, acrylic stands, and mugs, artist collaboration goods are also being produced to explore new uses for these items, such as whether AR can be used to promote CD albums in today’s streaming culture, which is becoming increasingly distant from CD albums. We will explore the expression of AR.

Collaboration #4 – “maco marets AR” / Natsuki Ono feat. maco marets (with Discont)

‘Experience the album as a space,’

The era of the CD album has moved away from CD albums, and music is now easily available for streaming.

It has become more convenient, but in the days when CD albums were the main source of music, you could physically touch and understand the artist’s own sensibilities. For this project, based on the maco marets 3rd album “Circles”, a new space was created by overlaying the world view of the album “Laundromat” on the real world with AR technology, and the color scheme and specifications that the maco marets themselves like to use were implemented through AR technology. I would like to propose this as a new approach to the promotion of CD albums.

Collaboration #5 – “Creature typeface” / Yagi Feijiro –

A typeface design that allows the user to view and bury a character (creature) in motion by reading a STYLY marker, which makes the character (creature) stand up in three dimensions in the present day as an AR when it is unearthed in the far future as a corpse and excavated from a graveyard.

About NEWVIEW CYPHER

NEWVIEW CYPHER is a community activity where creative expressions of all genres are expressed in a freestyle xR style. Like a hip-hop cypher, artists and creators from each genre gather and present their works to each other. Through mutual exchange and study, the artists and creators evaluate and praise each other’s highly original styles, and through this exchange and study, we will develop xR expression in each genre. As a culmination of the activities, an event “Open Cypher” will be held where participating artists/creators will make public presentations of their works and the best works will be selected. Unlike the awards, there will be no jury, and the best works will be selected by participants’ votes. Entries will be publicly solicited for submissions, and the works will be introduced at the event and presented with awards.
