Augmented Reality Art


New media artists Mark Skwarek and Sander Veenhof have created an impressive augmented reality installation at MoMA New York. As part of the Conflux Psychogeography Festival, the permanent virtual exhibition can only be seen by downloading an augmented reality app, Layar, onto a smartphone that exposes hidden artificial artworks.

Using navigational tools, the app guides you towards the pieces through the museum, which include digital faces suspended in mid-air, a chunk of the Berlin wall and a desert path in the sculpture garden.

Watch out for Skwarek’s current augmented reality project, erasAR, which can erase different objects from the face of the earth.
