Space, science, and brilliant women take center stage in “A Collection of Puzzles”, a stunning and colorful mural that uses augmented reality to create art Come to life.
The mural on a brick wall near the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City is the first in a series of “Results” murals by artist Amanda Fingbodebakia. As shown in the statement On the Findings Project site, there is “a vibrant, augmented reality-animated mural that connects a mysterious class of cosmic entities to the shiny and diverse women of New York.”
The piece displays the flag, especially brown dwarves, which are strange cosmic objects that are too small to be considered stars but much larger than the size of planets, because the “ science of drawing walls ” is inspired by the work of Jackie Verte, an astrophysicist and astronomer at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, according to the same statement. Faherty’s research specializes in the study of brown dwarves.

In fact, the mural depicts the “crazy atmosphere” of Brown dwarves With the draw on the table, Fahrty told 45seconds.fr. “I like to describe them as windows to the universe, and they provide us with information about stars and planets,” Fahrati said of brown dwarfs. In the mural, “You get a silicate cloud from the red type dominated by L dwarves and Y dwarves and blue to purplish T dwarves dominated by methane. It’s very good.”
According to the press release, the “group of puzzles”, drawn in October 2020, represents four women “grouped together, each hiding a part of themselves.” On the left side, the plaque highlights Dr. Josephine English, an obstetrician-gynecologist and the first black woman to open a private clinic in New York, the OB-GYN Clinic in New York who was also one of the first medical pioneers in Brooklyn.
“It is fitting that she sits among the stars as a pioneer in her field,” the statement reads.
Phingbodhipakkiya, who studied neuroscience at Columbia University before becoming a full-time artist and advocating for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), invited community members to participate in creating the mural, helping to paint a brick wall.
Now, while the mural itself is an amazing and colorful piece of art, it also includes augmented reality. The mural is paired with a free AR app that allows people who visit the mural in person (or even remotely) to explore the art and science behind the art.
A Bunch of Puzzles was the first in the “Results” series, and will be followed by the “We Have Fans” mural in Washington, DC. After the next installation, Phingbodhipakkiya planned murals for Denver, Oakland, California, and Seattle. The series is the result of Phingbodhipakkiya’s partnership with the Heising-Simons Foundation.
