Paper Metaverse is a rather special exhibition, which combines paperbacks and AR technology. It takes place in San Francisco from October 3 until November 13. Those who are lucky enough to be in the “city on the bay” therefore have more than a month to visit.
Paper Metaverse is one of the many works exhibited at the eco-responsible mixed art gallery called Adaptations: LAND. The gallery opens its doors more precisely at The Drawing Room Annex, 780 Valencia Street, San Francisco. Art lovers can visit it from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and every Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 9 p.m. The unique exhibition in augmented reality combining paperbacks and cutting-edge technology is a work by Nick Philip of the artist collective Imaginary Foundation.
Paper Metaverse: the classics of literature in the spotlight
The Paper Metaverse exhibition highlights the classics of literature. Visitors are thus led to scan the paperback novels that surround them using their smart phone. After digitizing such and such books, they will unlock NFT powered by AR.
According to the Imaginary Foundation on Facebook, “this exhibit uses the forgotten pages of yesterday’s novels to tell a collection of stories for tomorrow’s changing reality.” He did not fail to add that “Paper Metaverse merges physical, virtual and art “.
For this, it “combines a dynamic layer of NFT enabled by AR technology to an environment created from thousands of recycled paperback novels”. Apart from the work of Nick Philip, visitors can obviously immerse themselves in many other works at the Adaptations: LAND gallery.
