Vietnam’s first-ever augmented reality (AR) art gallery opened to visitors in the central city of Da Nang on Saturday night.

The event features 31 masterpieces created by 30 artists from various countries across the world.

AR is a form of art that brings still images to life with smartphones and other smart devices.

In order to experience the artworks fully, visitors are asked to use an application called EyeJack on their devices, thanks to which they can observe the augmented pictures as well as read information relating to the works.

Some of the more memorable artworks include ‘Kim Quy Hoan Kiem’ by Chris Mcbride, depicting a Vietnamese legend in which King Le Loi returns a mystical sword to the Golden Turtle God after fighting invaders in the 1420s.

Mcbride also presented his ‘World War I’ creation on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the end of the war, describing the casualties and consequences.

Australian artist James Jirat Patradoon brought his work titled ‘Mysterious Face’ to the exhibition.
