Refrakt is an augmented reality app. By scanning selected images, digital artworks become visible and the original pieces get transformed in virtual reality.
The digital world is ubiquitous, yet invisible to the naked human eye. Refrakt is a virtual museum revealing this increasingly relevant part of our daily lives and social interactions. By crossing the boundaries of physical space, various objects of all kinds of media play with the viewer’s perception of parallel realities. The device being used becomes an apparatus for this new world and lets the viewer interact with his immediate surroundings. While scanning real-life objects, he will perceive alternate realities in a virtual space.
