AURA is a new tour project in the city of Bayeux,in Normandy, that shows artworks on six facades through an augmented reality app. It gives the opportunity for all users to have an experience of an integration of virtual into reality.
AURA is imagined by Le Radar, Espace d'art actuel
The works are designed by the artist Justine Emard
The application is developed by Pristimantis
The tour is subject to weather conditions
The application can be downloaded free of charge on tablet and smartphone. Once installed on the device, the user locates the works on the route using a map. On the spot, he "scans" the facade in order to discover the work specially imagined by the artist for the place. Justine Emard was interested in the "memory of the walls" of the city and thus made them "speak".
