Adventures Through the Lenses started my Junior year when I was looking for a good slogan to go along with my newly made website. It was an exciting time for me. I had recently just changed my major to Communications and Digital Studies and re-introduced to the world of creating a strong digital identity and making digital art for a grade.

I will interview them, ask them a few rather personal questions about themselves and create an Augmented Reality biography of a mix of who they represent themselves as and how I view them.
