Is augmented reality the future?
Acute Art says “maybe”
In the time of mostly online art exhibitions and events, AR – or augmented reality – might become the next big thing when it comes to making art accessible in an entirely new and exciting way. Acute Art, a free app that is available for both iPhone and Android, is already testing the digital waters. Featuring works by renowned artists such as Marina Abramović, Anish Kapoor, Olafur Eliasson and others, Acute Art allows you to experience artworks in augmented reality without leaving your home.
