Guided Tour of The Augmented Landscape, Sunday, June 18th, 2-3pm

Join curator George Fifield on a guided tour of The Augmented Landscape.

Augmented Reality is computer-generated sound, video or graphics that are layered into a real-world environment. Sited throughout the park, either on the land and or in Salem Harbor, the sculptures will be positioned via GPS, each in a specific place on the Salem campus, and viewable by using the augmented reality application Layar (free for iOS and Android) on a smartphone or tablet.

The unique, site-specific augmented reality (AR) sculptures by John Craig Freeman, Kristin Lucas, Will Pappenheimer, and Tamiko Thiel in an outdoor exhibition at the National Park Service’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site.
The tour will meet in front of the Waite and Pierce Museum Store, located at 193 Derby Street, Salem, Massachusetts 01970.
We recommend downloading the Layar App to your smart device prior to the tour.
