Taking the Artwork Home

Digital Curation Through Mobile Augmented Reality

This project uses Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR) to allow people to digitally curate their own art exhibitions from their own homes using content from the Peter Scott Gallery at Lancaster University, and juxtapose this with their own media. Using this novel approach, the aims of the project are to discover new curatorial strategies; to uncover community identities; to enhance access & participation in the arts; and to inform events programming, tourism and business in new ways.

This project is funded by Nesta, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Arts Council England. #MARt.
