In Brief

A unique exhibition mixed the virtual with the real, and raises questions about future AR applications.

New York Times reporter Eduardo Porter was witness to a unique exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art last month. Organized by artists Mark Skwarek and Sander Veenhof, the exhibition made use of an augmented reality app called Layar to upload work that could only be seen via an iPhone.

While unsuspecting audience were appreciating the art galleries, Porter could see the Berlin Wall, a desert path and faces, all floating in air in front of him (video below).

He writes about his experiences in the Times and does not seem to be too comfortable with how augmented reality could affect our lives in the future.
