Jill Cousins, Director of the Hunt Museum says: “ We are always looking for ways to bring our artefacts to life for new audiences and generations. Having created a 3D model of our Apollo statue last year we had the basis to free him from his case and create the disruptive interaction with him that augmented reality can give us. Working with Alan and Uvis has delivered just that. From a learning aspect we hope that everyone looks at him anew and becomes engaged with all that he represents. AR makes Apollo a very cool dude!”
The Augmented Reality Makeover is the work of Alan Dormer and Uvis Zviedris, creative technologists who have also worked on a range of projects in the theatre,arts and cultural sectors. We contacted Alan Dormer at the University of Limerick to discuss possible projects earlier in 2021.
Alan commented: “ We are so pleased to be working with The Hunt Museum on this project. While still in its early days, Augmented Reality technologies allow us to push the boundaries of traditional experience and offer us new and exciting ways to engage with cultural artifacts and spaces.”
