More room for art with AR

The exhibition Gimme More ran from 21 February till 2 March 2013 at the Eyebeam Art + Technology Center in New York. The idea behind the exhibition was the way in which AR artworks highlights the relationship between physical and virtual reality. Allison Meier wrote an enthusiastic review on Hyperallergic about Gimme More, but the author is not entirely convinced whether or not AR is the next ‘immediate’ medium – something the exhibit’s organisers had put forward. According to Meier, the artworks are too unstable from time to time and, perhaps, are too heavily reliant on technology.

Several videos of AR artworks can be watched on Hyperallergic’s website.
