testing our filmpro AR app

filmpro presented an exhibition to pilot our augmented reality (AR) App at the Art Pavilion, Mile End as part of Nesta’s Amplified Programme.

filmpro’s artistic director Caglar Kimyoncu working with AR developer Albert Barbu created a prototype that worked as both a creative and an access tool for artists working with moving image in a gallery environment.

As an evolution from its common usage our AR App enabled moving image to trigger synched audio description, sign language and captions with the artwork in physical space, as well as provided additional narrative content. Developed in our creative lab the prototype was first piloted in Lisbon for project VAST/O by Carolina Martins.

The exhibition presented work by filmpro associate artists:
Caglar Kimyoncu – what makes you who you are
Michael Achtman – Flow
Chas de Swiet – Fire
TKRDS – Gratitude
Zeynep Dagli – Negotiation between Madness & Sanity
Carolina Martins & Natalie Woolf – VAST/O

filmpro is a grantee of the Nesta Amplified fund. Amplified is a fund from innovation foundation Nesta set up to support cultural and creative organisations seeking to develop digital ideas that generate social impact.
