Augmented beasts: AR pop-up book

Description (in English): 

Augmented beasts builds on some of my experiences and preoccupations in the book world – my books on circus, optical illusion (Painted Circus), visual experiences that weave together unusually coupled animals (Mixed Beasts) and animals who live, for example, in strange Victorian Houses (Alphabeasts). It is also indebted to my fascination with magic and, of course, by the possibilities I see in the emerging medium of augmented reality itself for children: being able to ‘touch’ a virtual object and make it disappear... being able to use an ipad as a looking glass to encounter hidden illustrations, stories and music. This piece was coded in Vuforia for ipad during an artist residency at the Augmented reality lab at York University.
