Acropolis Remix Project

In order to explore new spaces and new possibilities of art curation in contemporaneity, a research of current trends in virtual exhibitions and artist’s books have been made. From this research was designed a model of curating new media art, which consists of a hybrid book format (phigital) in augmented reality. The format, named “augmented artist’s anchorbook”, has great portability, as it can be digitally shared along with printing and displaying instructions, or be exhibited in galleries, museums, libraries, gardens, and other non-profit institutions etc., its sole limitation being the need for access and use of compatible technology. It should be noted that the same markers/book anchors could easily be used to host many exhibitions, with different application, i.e., each book could anchor multiple exhibitions and become an infinite book. The infinitude of the book and its exhibition possibilities is still being tested, as it is conceived to be a work in progress.
