Description
As a part of a Snapchat project titled Art All Around You, the tech company and social media platform partnered with artist Jeff Koons to digitalize and geo-locate 6 of his sculptures in high traffic locations around the globe. The digital sculptures are available to Snapchat users on site. 

This app demonstrates the AR category of Display Objects. In this category, digital content is combined with material objects to function as a compositional display object. The combination of the physical and digital artifacts in this category usually results in an object that functions in a similar way to material exhibition objects.
