Traditional painting meets the technology of today. Imagine your smartphone as a looking glass through which you could view an artist’s virtual vision of the world. This app makes it possible! Through this app viewers will be able to see artist Grace Grothaus's street scape paintings hovering in the air courtesy their phone’s camera and the magic of augmented reality. As the user pans across designated street scapes, images of her layered paintings will appear. A building in a street scape synchs up to the same building in her painting. In this way, the phone becomes a looking glass through which viewers are able to compare and contrast the real world with her virtual vision of it. The real and the virtual coexist. You can review the world her eyes. Download now to view paintings in a way you've never seen - off the gallery wall and out in the real world!
Note that this app is designed specifically to view Grace Grothaus' Re(View) in Situ series of artwork. Virtualized paintings will only be visible when viewing street scape photos from this series which can be seen in exhibitions, or on postcards available at exhibitions.
