AR Project Curates Monthly Art Shows On Subway Passes

AR Project Curates Monthly Art Shows On Subway Passes

An augmented gallery space that travels with you around New York City.

Serena Chu

Created by Christopher Manzione, the ActivatAR project uses an accompanying augmented reality app to host monthly shows on top of the NYC Metrocard. The first show will feature the 3D sculptural works by artist Michael Rees. Titled “New Yup,” this augmented reality sculpture will encompass a zoomed-in view of the universe and a rotating wireframe entity that hugs the moving image.

If you view the display through lens of your smartphone, you will see both objects hovering above the Metrocard in an alluring virtual space that’s separate from the chaos of the New York Subway system. Rees’s spectacular display of shapes and movement offers a fun alternative to the daily grind on public transportation.

Get in on the fun here.
