This App makes part of a work of Art consisting of an intervention to three of Piet Mondrian’s most famous paintings: "Composition with Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray and Blue", "Composition with lines" and the unfinished "Victory Boogie-Woogie".
Hyperplasticism profits from the possibilities of augmented reality to extend the properties of traditional plastic art. Aiming the camera to any of these paintings will reveal new dynamic, interactive and generative capabilities, allowing for deconstruction of Mondrian’s work.
Many aspects of Piet’s life and career are discussed throughout this piece, including his theory, technique, lifestyle and death.
