ABOUT GIMME MORE
While the mechanics of augmented reality (AR) are surprisingly straightforward, the resulting effects are transporting and revelatory, and also suggest the potential for exciting commercial, design and artistic applications.
Designed both to inspire and encourage the audience to challenge traditional perceptions and rethink how we generate and use content, "Gimme More" enables exhibition-goers to adopt an experiential role that makes them active participants in the creation of a new media. What all this means for exhibition visitors is the opportunity to gain insight into the meaning of objects, the world around them and even into their own bodies through interactive installations that are by turns fun, ironic and thought-provoking.
