Absent Art

This interactive installation by Clemens Hackl (Ludic Online) presents artwork and designs by artists from the global African and African-Caribbean diaspora who’s artwork can’t be physically exhibited.

Within a physical environment that is "missing" the actual works of art visitors are encouraged to virtually explore each piece and connect with the artists using their smartphones. The Absent Art is replaced by individual QR-Codes, directing visitors to the virtual exhibit when scanned.

In this experimental exhibition Clemens replaces the physical world with the virtual, crossing the boundaries between the two realities that define our lives.

To experience the installation visitors will need to install one of the many QR-Code Apps available for their smartphones in the app stores. Here are a few suggestions:
