After releasing an augmented reality project that situates digital versions of one of his coveted sculptures in 12 cities around the world as part of a public exhibition called “COMPANION (EXPANDED),” Brian Donnelly, who is widely known as KAWS, made an adjustment to the initiative when social distancing efforts took hold. The artist added an update to the Acute Art app allowing users to experience the sculpture from their homes.
