Augmented Reality Art.

Digital Art (a.k.a. New Media Art) looks quite fun and gets a lot of attention from visitors. Here is some digital art from theMuseum of Modern Art in New York. Artists Mark Skwarek and Sander Veenhof use Layar, which is a very well known augmented reality platform.

  1. The goal of augmented reality is to enable a blending of the real and virtual worlds, one that creates a virtual layer over the real world. It is easy to see how such an added layer would be useful in museums, who seek to entertain and educate their patrons. While mottos such as “bringing history to life” are common, the standard practice of juxtaposing physical artifacts or objects with textual descriptions may not inspire every visitor’s imagination.
