Augmented (hyper)Reality Exhibition

According to Wikipedia: Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real-world are “augmented” by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory, and olfactory. Augmented reality can be drawn from real-world applications or it can be completely generated from yourself. Augmented Reality creates the possibility to make all art immersive and interactive, even the art that is not.
