Augmented Reality Brings Tattoos to Life




A recent exhibit used augmented reality and iPads to turn tattoos into works of 3D art

Visual artist Alison Bennett created the “Shifting Skin” exhibit by using a program called Aurasma to add AR overlays to images of tattoos, ultimately transforming them from body art to 3D structures. The exhibit used tablets to display the new 3D renderings

The exhibit was on display at Deakin University Art Gallery near Melbourne, Australia. Check out the video above to see how the tattoos appeared in their augmented reality form
