Today signals the beginning of a radical change in how we see and experience reality. Portable and wearable electronic devices equipped with Augmented Reality (AR) features are directly extending human perception in extraordinary ways. Mixed reality technology is enabling profound shifts in how we communicate and interact with one another and how we experience our environments.

Organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA), the “Redefining Reality” exhibition displays as centrepiecethe outdoor installation “Resonance-In-Sight”. This artwork consists of a physical component, a dramatic pair of elegantly curved, brightly colouredsteel structures, placed several metresapart to create a tangible tension between them, and a virtual element, a mixed reality overlay made possible through holographic superimposition. This new reality is carefully designed and curated to echo the museum’s collection, changes overtime, and is accessed through visitors’ own hand-held electronic devices.

Through a tailor-made AR application, visitors can connect with a special selection from HKMoA’sfour core collections, presented virtually in a playfully, interactive animated form, connecting the two sculptures and the museum. BespokeInstagram filters additionally allow visitors to directly interact with the museum’s art pieces and immerse themselves further into exhibits. The resonance between all these elements defines the full artwork experience, inviting visitors into the museum to continue exploring its unique magnificent collections.
