Pratt Institute Digital Arts Students Use Augmented Reality to Enhance Library Experience (Video)
A group of 11 Pratt Institute digital arts students have activated the Pratt Library on the Institute’s Brooklyn campus with librARy : works cited, an augmented reality (AR) exhibition of works that inform, entertain, and speculate on the past and future of Pratt library culture.
With librARy : works cited, the entire Pratt Library, from its front facade to its interior, contains a new rich layer of virtual art and information available to visitors with the free Blippar app installed on their smartphone or tablet. Explore librARy : works cited in this short video.
The exhibition can also be experienced in the library on the Brooklyn campus through October 11, 2017.
