In this quick two-week long project, I made an iOS app in Xcode and Swift that allows people to augment elements of René Magritte paintings and take pictures with it. Users can also read information about the artist and the paintings.
Have you ever looked at a painting and felt as if you were in that painting?
I wanted to recreate that feeling with Augmented Reality, with some of my favorite paintings by René Magritte.
Inspired by René Magritte's artwork, I constructed a visual identity for my app.
After going through a lot of tutorials and documentation, I was able to make a functioning AR app with Xcode.
I was first intimidated by the thought of designing and developing a mixed reality application. However, with the abundant documentation and tutorials related to ARKit, creating something with AR was surprisingly easy. I'd love to take this project further and explore what else I can make with ARKit.
