Welcome to the Pocket Museum, an augmented object collection of virtual realities available in your favourite museum gift shop. The collection is equipped with sensors that transport you into the illusory space of AI art. Put on your VR goggles -or your spatial computer- and we are off!

The space we find ourselves in is in constant flux and expansion. Complementing the dizzying pace of the AI media, the spaces overlap in surprising, illusory, and deceptive juxtapositions. As you, the visitor, progress through the VR experience, you will encounter surprising revelations that you must navigate to find the new spatial media. Are you sure you have chosen the right path and are you looking in the right direction? Scrolling through art is the journey. Better be quick and explore.

These artefacts are multiscale architectural totems of new technology, new modes of visuality and art history. They encompass the past, present and future art of societies with unparalleled speed and inclusivity. Through collective curation, selection and exhibition; customs, rituals, traditions, stories, and unheard histories find their audience. The totem collection grows as new stories are created.  

Don’t forget to exit through the gift shop and pick up your Pocket Museum!
