Fishing upon the Blythe Sand, Tide Setting In
By Joseph Mallord William Tuner
Joseph Mallord William Turner is said to have owned seven cats that once tore the painting into five pieces. When looking at the Instagram camera, you can watch the now-repaired canvas rupture again when a stray, tiger-cat leaps through the frame.
Amateurs of Tye-Wig Music ('Musicians of the Old School')
By Edward Francis Burney
To dissonant sounds, the backdrop of Amateurs of Tye-Wig Music suddenly begins to move on the smartphone view: A parrot steals a wig, children grab the instruments of the musicians, a dog yaps in the performance. The AR animation complements the chaotic bustle of the snapshot.
A Youth Relating Tales to Lady
By Simeon Solomon
The painting A Youth Relating Tales to Lady heralded a new era for the visual culture of the late 19th century. Through your smartphone, you can watch viewers in front of the artwork, which today seem as out of place as the artist Solomon felt during his lifetime.
Farm at Watendlath
By Dora Carrington
The work Farm at Watendlath contrasts two tiny female figures with huge mountain formations. The AR effect triggers an animation in which the relative scales are exchanged to break the social norms of the "typical feminine."
Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose
By John Singer Sargent
Sargent always tried to capture a scene in perfect light. In the Augmented Reality exhibition, you can follow the visual effects of the passage of time in Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose as lanterns flicker and flowers wither until the light finally goes out.
