An exhibition of colourful, life size sculptures utilising augmented reality (AR) by artist Jason Wilsher-Mills.
Taking inspiration from his ancient Greek namesake, who sought out the bravest Greek heroes to travel with him on his epic journey, Wilsher-Mills found new heroes in the disabled communities he worked with in his journey around Britain. This exhibition brings the unique stories of these heroes to life.
PHM will be home to Brave Boy Billy, The Corby Rocker and The Corby PIP Princess. Visitors will be able to interact physically with the sculptures via iPad or smartphone; to unlock the animations, text, music and audio. These AR elements are accessed through free to download apps and tablets will be available at the museum.
Jason is a UK based disabled digital artist. He uses digital media and 3D printing to create large artworks about his disability, childhood memories, popular culture and social history.
