Apparitions in Durbar Hall, Hastings Museum

Apparitions is a new artwork in three parts by Luciana Haill.

Come along to this free drop-in event, learn about the amazing bygone monunments of St Leonards Pier, The Memorial Clocktower and Bexhill beach huts, all long gone – destroyed or dismantled. Explore anachronistic soundscapes that are triggered when viewing special vintage postcards, secretly encoded with ‘AR’ data, spectral models float from your smartphone’s camera.

We have lots to share and amaze you with augmented reality on your smartphone. Meet the artist, and have guided demonstrations with our hardware to experience the art. If you have an iPhone or iPad we can show you how to download, install and explore the spectral 3D models with sonic journeys attached. We will give you the special vintage postcards that contain the code to trigger the experience, so if you can bring your own Apple devices we can get you up and running! Id love to give it out for Android users also, but currently do not have enough budget.
