Augmented Reality creates an Immersive experience in Vienna’s Albertina Art Gallery
Augment reality might not be a bad thing, it can aid in safeguarding the gems of the Museums around the world.
Museums and Galleries are seen as ‘State of the Art’, a venue where most gems such as fine paintings from famous artists, including Monet, Picasso, Davinci, Freud, Matisse just to name a few, reside. Where the most expensive and rare painting are, surveillance is at its tightest to ensure they are not stolen.
With augmented reality (AR), even the rarest paintings from the century-old renowned artists can go on display and yet create immersive experience for discerning art lovers.
From diving into AR to aid the disabled swim with dolphins and climb Mount Everest in the living room to taking guests on a curated tour experience around the hotel to view the part-reality and part-virtual world, digital display technology will continue to develop and envision key projects of our future.
The interactive application allows a package of information, a mix of animation and still images with audio narration and project these audio-visual effects onto a plain wall surface for a more immersive digital experience in the world where artificial intelligence thrive.
This festive month, the art pieces of Monet and Picasso now comes alive at the Vienna’s Albertina art gallery with augmented reality (AR), which the newly created mobile application from the Art Gallery itself is free for download to the phones.
With AR tech, the phone’s interface can deliver the visual aspects with audio option, move elements around and also project up to 13 paintings in the Albertina’s collection.
“I think that sometimes new ways are needed to look at classic art works in a playful, non-classic way,” enthused the Albertina’s general director Albrecht Schroeder.
Like a talking head, the app will tell visitors when, where and how the works were made in addition to the 45-second animations.
