Max Ernst AR App
With Augmented Reality in the footsteps of Max Ernst
Next level museum fun: visit the Max Ernst Museum and become an artist yourself! With the creative collecting and design app “Max Ernst AR”, you assume the role of Max Ernst, scan works of art, collect 12 hidden forms and everyday objects from more than 70 sculptures of the collection, acquire exciting knowledge, answer puzzle questions and design your own virtual figure as a work of art.
Carve your own way through the museum and discover how Max Ernst assembled his sculptures from individual elements. For his sculptures, Max Ernst used simple everyday objects like egg cartons, flowerpots, natural materials like pebbles and shells or mathematical basic forms and transformed their meaning through his unusual, imaginative, sometimes humorous new combinations.
And now it is your turn! First you must discover all the individual objects of the various sculptures. Once you have found the objects, you can compile them in the gallery. With your collection, you can get started in the workshop and be creative. Combine the individual forms. You can enlarge them or reduce their size, duplicate them or cover them with a different surface. Almost done: all that is missing is your artist name and a cool title. Enter it and your own work of art is complete!
The bilingual AR app has an accessible reading-out-loud function and a dynamic text and reading size adjustment option. All texts are gender-neutral and written in plain language.
