You may not believe your eyes this summer as the AGO offers you a magical new way to experience art. From Toronto-based digital artist Alex Mayhew comes ReBlink, an innovative augmented reality experience that will tap the power of leading-edge technology to give visitors the chance to see works from the AGO Collection (Canadian and European) in a whole new way.
Mayhew highlights how much we have and haven’t changed in 150 years since Canada’s confederation, inviting visitors to look at historic paintings through a unique 21st century lens. Visitors will see something unexpected – the painting’s subjects coming alive, reflecting a vision of our daily reality in the 21st century.
Best experienced on recent, high end devices. Tested on Nvidia Shield K1 (great), LG G4 (acceptable) and Nexus 7 (acceptable).
Alex Mayhew would like to thank the team for all their hard work, creativity and support:
