Art Basil is an augmented reality scavenger hunt app that was featured at Allmost Gallery’s ArtBasil show 2017 and . Illustrations, by the artist GirlBarf, come to life in front of your eyes as you search your way through the gallery looking to find all of the hidden drawings. Still Life sculptural pieces dot the gallery creating immersive moments where the physical and digital objects meet.
Utilizing the culturally understood structure of the scavenger hunt, the app became a successful introduction into augmented reality for a lot of people that night, as visitors engaged with the app and their surroundings with little to no instructions.
