Visioning Lab worked with Quays Culture and the Lowry Art Gallery to create an AR experience for the Lightwaves Art Festival
Groups of People at Lightwaves Festival
Visioning Lab produced PopupView as an AR app for the Lightwaves Festival using digital drawings sketched in virtual reality by visitors to the Immersive Lab. The work was inspired by LS Lowry and also used photo montages created by fine artist Amber McCormack. This project was part of a workshop series introducing people to drawing in virtual reality and the process of making augmented reality experiences for the PopupView platform.
Visioning Lab developed a PopupView campaign for the launch of the Manchester Museum insect gallery. We invited visitors to the launch to ‘release’ the spirits of the butterflies from their display cases. This narrative invited discussion and reflection on the trapping and death of insects as Victorian curiosities.
