City Unseen: Jennifer Desire 'Unity' Mural in Augmented Reality

To elevate the Jennifer Desire Foundation’s mission to combat homelessness and support the community, Snap! Orlando will recreate the Jennifer Desire mural in Parramore, bringing Artist Maureen Hudas’ mural to life through augmented reality,

In 2020, Orlando activist Jennifer Desire was featured on a mural envisioned by artist Maureen Hudas. The mural embodies the quote, “All love seeks unity” and was painted by a team of artists and apprentices. It was located on Interstruct Orlando’s future headquarters, at 814 W. Church St. in the Parramore Heritage Neighborhood of downtown Orlando. The mural became an instant landmark in the neighborhood proving to be an easy-to-find location for Desire’s community events to help neighbors in need. She provided home-cooked Thanksgiving meals, haircuts and children’s holiday gifts for hundreds of people. Sadly, in late 2021, the mural had to be decommissioned to allow construction of the new headquarters. Interstruct reached out to Snap! Orlando to document to mural while in existence in order to bring it back in Augmented Reality in 2022. Snap! has been working on the project and will reveal and install it at the site this fall. 

It will be part of Snap!’s Award Winning citywide CITY UNSEEN public [AR]t project, and we are excited to bring it back to life in fully animated and interactive 3D, and a voice-over of Jennifer Desire speaking about her mission, for the whole community to enjoy, through the CITY UNSEEN app. Interstruct and Jennifer Desire will continue to host a variety of community-driven events in the years to come.
