Objects in Mirror are Closer than they Appear was a guerilla exhibition at Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, a museum renowned for its collection of old masters paintings. Without advising the museum, we hijacked the gallery and altered 82 paintings in augmented reality. While scanning the paintings with their smartphones or tablets, the viewers could see our digital artworks appear in virtual space. By crossing the boundaries of physical space, various objects of all kinds of media play with the viewer’s perception of parallel realities.
