Digital artist, Alex Mayhew, has created an app that allows visitors of the Art Gallery of Ontario to experience traditional paintings in augmented reality (AR). The app is called reBlink and gives historical paintings a modern update. When a viewer opens the app and points their camera at a painting, the image is adapted on-screen. The paintings ‘come to life’ by moving and also include a contemporary twist – such as a smartphone or selfie stick. The app is available on iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded ahead of time. Check out the teaser below.
