Message in a Bottle
This sculpture by Steven Thomson and Jonas Allen is billed as "a virtual sculpture that can only be fully appreciated via your smartphone."
Instructions are given about downloading an App, then using the camera which appears to point at the label on the bottle. The mermaid then materialises, and a snap taken.
It's a novel idea, and I had a lot of fun with it. I'm all for playing around with art, form, function and technology, and the idea of exhibitions providing a bit of fun.
