Augmented Reality (AR) applications, such as the Google Arts & Culture app and Snapchat Lens Studio, have introduced a transformative dimension to art exploration by overlaying information and interactive elements onto real-world environments. This information overlay serves to enrich the viewing experience, providing users with additional context, historical insights, and interactive features related to the artworks they encounter. The integration of AR technologies into these applications adds a layer of depth to art appreciation, allowing users to engage with artworks in a more dynamic and informative manner.

AR technology doesn’t confine itself solely to the digital realm; it extends its impact to physical museum visits as well. By adding extra layers of information or even creating AR-only art experiences, AR enhances the museum-going experience for visitors. This blending of the virtual and physical worlds creates a harmonious and enriched environment where digital elements seamlessly interact with physical exhibits. Visitors find themselves immersed in a blended reality, where the boundaries between the tangible and the digital dissolve, offering a truly unique and enhanced museum exploration.

Examples of these augmented reality experiences can be found in applications like the Google Arts & Culture app, Snapchat Lens Studio, and Artivive, each providing distinct ways to blend the virtual and physical art worlds. These applications serve as portals for users to immerse themselves in a dynamic and enriched art experience that goes beyond traditional modes of engagement.
