Wintermoot incorporates social practice, augmented reality, graphic novels, and digital humanities to form a series of interconnected epic tales of supernatural people from all over Alaska, spanning several generations. As both a mobile app and augmented graphic novel set in an alternate history Alaska, the work tells the stories of characters created in collaboration with other Alaskans, bringing together over 30 languages and cultures.

Nathan Shafer is a new media artist, author and special education teacher from Alaska. He is one of the founding members of both the Meme-Rider Media Team, an art collective founded in 2000 designing early form internet memes, and Manifest.AR, the first International art collective making mobile augmented reality works. He was profiled by PBS Digital Studios as part of an online collaboration called The Future in 2014. Shafer’s geobased AR works have been displayed on every continent. His work has been shown at Noxious Sector Projects, Bauwelt, Bunnell Street Arts Center, Rhizome, ISEA, Pratt Museum, Virtuale Switzerland, Out North Contemporary Art House and the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston. He also contributed chapters to the first anthology of AR-based art making, Augmented Reality Art, published by Springer in 2014; as well as Augmented Reality Games II (2019); Augmented Reality in Education (2020) and Augmented Reality in Museums, Tourism, and Heritage (2021). His current work is called Wintermoot, an augmented Alaskan comic book for which he has received a Creative Capital award in 2020.
