Artificial Museum


TheArtificial Museumis the connection between physical, digital, and imaginary worlds, transforming analog art into digital experiences.

The Artificial Museum creates a surreality map of augmented sculptures at various locations around Europe. The free placement of animated artifacts in public spaces invites users to dive into this extended world.

The Museum is connected to the real world through the web-based augmented reality application you are currently visiting, we hope you will enjoy your stay.

TheSystemCollectiveis a syndicate of independent artists, makers, programmers, engineers, philosophers, activists, and scientists, collectively using art and technology to transform our world. We believe in a literal definition of "common goods", and convert public spaces into a museum, ready for artists to freely position their art.
