1. Project Description

You are already developing skills in this course for creating digitised versions of your analogue work. This can be used for all kinds of purposes - some promotional, some administrative, some creative.

This assessment task will explore what is possible for your digital images by creating a "virtual exhibition" that could potentially exist anywhere, or be overlayed on a physical gallery. We will use a form of Augmented Reality - QR codes, or if we can get a server set up, GPS coordinates, to give an audience access to virtual content provided by you.

Examples of this kind of thing include:

Unseen Sculptures - http://www.unseensculptures.com/

Augmented Reality at MoMA - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9T2LVM7ynM

 

 

MONA Gallery - "O" Device (the opposite of the MoMA exhibition - in this case, the information is virtual, triggered as you approach the physical artwork)- http://mona.net.au/theo/

The AR Art Manifesto - http://www.manifestar.info/

2. Requirements

Select a maximum of 3 images of your artwork for the exhibition. As a group, decide on a title for the exhibition, which artworks and the order in which they might be accesses, and produce an invitation (PDF file).

If you want to use video in this project, it can be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo and the URL used instead of an image (see me if you want to use this option).

Promote the exhibition by using different media - physical and online. What are the possibilities?

You will be provided with the technological assistance to do this project, so the only skills you will require are those of creating digital versions of your artwork, and a willingness to participate in something outside of your comfort zone.

 

3. Specifications

Digital Images must be suitable for Web - JPG or PNG-24 format, 72dpi, with a maximum width/height of 1200px (depending on orientation).

*Ethical and University Policy requirements may affect the content that can be displayed in the exhibition.
