Augmented Reality Art
3D Photogrammetry, Animation and Sound Design of the Wonderland Series
The Wonderland Series has been transformed into an immersive Augmented Reality experience, where guests can now explore the artwork in a more interactive and engaging manner.
Karen Alsop, the artist behind the 'Alice Falling', 'Flight of Freedom', and 'Passage of Time' 2D series, has brought her works to life for the 2023 Monash Children's Hospital Gala event. The towering 3-meter tall art installations were displayed in the Crown Palladium Ballroom foyer, and guests were able to access the augmented reality experience by scanning a QR code with their devices.
Thanks to the collaboration with Hoverlay, Karen was able to create a three-dimensional world full of animation, 3D renderings of the original 2D elements from her art series, and dynamic sound design. This emotive art experience transports guests into a captivating and enveloping world of creativity.
The art installations were displayed at an event raising funds for Monash Children's Hospital in Melbourne. The experience was created in partnership with Hoverlay, a leading technology company specializing in augmented reality solutions.
As guests enter the augmented reality world, they are transported into a three-dimensional space full of animation, sound design, and 3D renderings of the original 2D elements from Karen's art series.

Karen Alsop brought her Wonderland series to life in an even bigger way by designing and animating a stunning digital backdrop that was displayed throughout the evening at the Crown Palladium Ballroom.
