Lapse is an AR app aiming to upgrade public urban space by incorporating AR public artworks in it. The installations include an audio component, which aims to establish an improved experience of public space and turn the city into a canvas and the walk through it to a gallery visit. Lapse is commissioned by the Miami Dade County.
