PORTRAIT OF AMERICA | Portrait of America, the seminal work of David Datuna’s “Viewpoint of Billions” series, is a groundbreaking 12-foot multi-media flag and the first public installation and artwork in the world to utilize Google Glass. The vision of an artist whose story is akin to the American dream, Portrait of America chronicles the journey of a diverse and great nation through a new visual language.
On Presidents Day Weekend 2014, visitors of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery were invited to try on Glass and experience the artist’s interactive, multi-discipline work of art, with a unique opportunity to become a permanent part of the digital narrative unveiled within it.
In a show of support, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Potus' righthand man, stopped by to meet the artist. Read more about the overwhelming response in the Washington Post.
