EXHIBITIONS (New in Version 2.0.0):
After launching the app, you must a select an exhibition from the Exhibitions menu, which will automatically be displayed the first time you use the app. All of the models for that exhibition will be downloaded into the app for your viewing pleasure. After than, the last Exhibition previously loaded will remain on your device until you select another one. This means that you can download the exhibition before you leave for the gallery, in case your coverage there isn’t up to the task, or if the exhibition is in the middle of the woods!
Aim your camera at any supported target. An Augmented Reality model will appear on your screen, together with identifying information at the bottom of the screen, sometimes accompanied by additional instructions. You can move around the target image or rotate your device, etc., in order to see the 3D model from additional angles. Feel free to look around!
The message bar at the bottom of the screen changes when an Augmented Reality target is identified. Generally, it displays the name of the artwork, the artists, the location, and the show, book, or project that the artwork is from. In certain instances, it may also include additional instructions when specific pieces allow for additional interaction. At the right end of the message bar is a web icon that you can click to go to the artist or organization’s website.
WHERE DID IT GO? If the model disappears, you may have lost contact with the target image. If you return to viewing the target image on your screen, the 3D model should appear again, as well.
JITTERS? If the 3D model seems jittery, make sure you have good light on the target. In some cases, if you move the camera away from the target, the model will continue to persist for a while, but it may become unstable eventually. Get the target back on your screen to re-orient and stabilize the model.
TOO DARK? If your lighting isn’t good enough to see the target, use the light icon in the upper left or your screen to turn on your flash to see the target. The icon is only present if you actually have a light on your device.
NO TARGET? If you don’t have any targets for viewing the Augmented Reality, you can view or download them from the links on this page, or get a friend to download the app and display the targets on their screen by using the TARGETS item on the pull-down menu. You should be able to see them from there!
