AR digitally transforms museum with building tracking
Museum uses augmented reality to show exhibition information using the building façade.
The mumok is a museum of modern art located in the Museumsquartier in Vienna, Austria. Its striking dark grey cuboid building structure, clad in basalt stone, houses an unusual collection featuring important works from Classic Modernism, Pop Art, Fluxus, Viennese Actionism, present-day film, and media art.
- Innovatively inform visitors about museum exhibitions
With the intention of attracting new museum visitors and informing frequent museum-goers, the developers wanted to surpass the limits of the physical world by attaching interactive AR content directly to the building structure itself.
AR app: mumokAR [ Google Play – App Store ]
mumokAR is a mixed reality app that lets users experience and interact with the transformation of the main museum building.
During this process, the building transforms in a gigantic urban stage and several sequences playfully reveal museum-related content and information regarding existing and upcoming exhibitions. Interaction through tapping on moving objects further reveals surprises to the users.
