Irish Soda Bread AR exhibition at Maith AR/Irish Cultural Museum of New Orleans is the world’s first AR food-themed exhibition. Brought to life by Stephen Black, with the support of XR Masters and Augmented City, the exhibition will officially open in September 2021 at Maith AR, the world’s first permanent exhibition space for AR.
Maith is an “invisible gallery” located within the Irish Cultural Museum of New Orleans. Utilizing GeoPose-based AR, the AR objects in Maith are permanent/semi-permanent, and can be seen by multiple users at the same time,
Digital copies of the Irish Soda Bread exhibition will be available to selected venues worldwide, including museums, libraries, restaurants, bakeries and a variety of public spaces.
