Synopsis

Everyone has at one point experienced being lost or frustrated in a complex hospital, mall or airport. You are probably unaware how big or far this gallery goes! 

“MRsive” is an MR / AR (Mixed Reality/Augmented Reality) activated solution that supports indoor wayfinding and visitor engagement within complex architectural spaces, namely the Art Gallery of Ontario. MRsive provides in-situ dynamic directions and information about the gallery space and the art pieces. The AGO visitor intuitively follows virtual cues anchored in 3D in the physical space to find different exhibits or points of interest. MRsive augments the displayed art with extra digital information and engage the visitor with a multisensory interpretation of the art that uses visual, auditory and haptic interactions.
