This post is about the AR (in)curiosity in my recent Absurd Museum: Dr Kali Gehry’s Cabinet of (in)Curiosities and Ecstatic Nonsense

The orientation and trigger for this AR overlay experience running on a dangling iPad is a small wooden box with a Dr Seuss character and a roughly painted black cross. Holding the iPad while walking around the gallery space, the viewer can see a spatially registered and oriented digital overlay that seems to follow the users movements. Multiple digital worlds can be thus seemingly conjured inside the gallery, triggering both wonder and amusement.

The hanging iPad AR (in)Curiosity and others from my recent museum of the absurd, Doctor Kali Gehry’s Cabinet of (in)Curiosities & Ecstatic Nonsense.
