[Art & Creativity] Pure Land Augmented Reality Edition

Abstract :
Pure Land : Augmented Reality Edition (Pure Land AR) uses mobile media technology to create an “augmented reality” rendition of Cave 220 from Dunhuang.
Walking around inside the exhibition space with tablet screens in hand visitors are able to view the architecture of the cave at exactly 1: 1 scale and to explore its sculptures and wall paintings as they appear on viewers’ mobile “windows”—a kinesthetic revealing of the painted architectonic space. Initially premiered at the HK Art Fair 2012, this singular expression of an embodied interface was installed for a mass public at the Shanghai Biennale (October 2012-March 2013) in China.
