Title: This Mural is a Time Traveling Portal
A mural depicting archways, stairways, a strong vanishing point, sensation of depth. One can see painted objects scattered in this imaginary space; items from the museum collection mixed with elements from the San Francisco landscape and some curious ceramic heads. QR codes integrated into the painting suggest there’s something more to the work than a naked eye can access. If seen through a smartphone’s camera, the work reveals every week a different thing: an AR filter, a video, a link to a custom metaverse, a story. The painting is a dynamic portal to another reality where strange creatures tell us what they know about the history of humanity.
During the night, the mural comes to life when light is projected on top of it. For a short time, the digital world can live with the physical.
