It appears that our exhibition Out of the Box has been hijacked again. We are looking into possible causes. At this stage, we have very little to go on. Instead of artworks, we have question marks and notices from the Department of Augmented Reality Protection. We have emailed DARP and are waiting for their response. We will endeavor to replace the models as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we are asking for your help with these disappearances. If you see the question marks, please report them to DARP. If you see artworks or question marks, please take a screenshot and share it with us from Layar. Please stand by for further updates.

We have had reports of question marks appearing and a notification from the Department of Augmented Reality Protection. We have no explanation for it. The artworks have been replaced now.

The streets of San Francisco have been populated with new artworks that you can see with your cell phone. Out of the box is a mobile Augmented Reality exhibition open during January 2012 featuring a selection of virtual reality artworks spanning 1997-2011. Released from the confines of their virtual reality installations, elements from these VR works have been re-contextualized and can now be viewed as three dimensional art object integrated within the physical landscape of San Francisco.
Out of the Box is curated by the Future of Reality artist collective and features artwork by Applied Interactives, Atlas in silico, Bino and Cool, Sheldon Brown, Ben Chang, Margaret Dolinsky, Diana Domingues, John Craig Freeman, Paul Hertz, Will Pappenheimer and Silvia Ruzanka.
To view the work on any iPhone or Android mobile device, please visit http://www.layar.com/layers/hellofor on your mobile web browser or download any free code reader app (http://redlaser.com) and simply scan the QR code below. If you don’t already have the free Layar Augmented Reality Browser installed, you will be prompted to do so (http://layar.com). Once Layar is installed, Out of the Box will be launched.
Within Layar, you can post your comments about the artworks as well as share them with friends via Facebook and Twitter. You can also take screenshots of your augmented reality experiences and post them to our website from within Layar.
The artworks are at fixed locations. Here is a map of San Francisco to help you locate the artworks.

Future of Reality is a newly formed artist collective interested in past, present and future forms of virtual reality artworks. As individuals we create and collect a wide variety of VR pieces and are interested in forming a comprehensive survey of artworks to facilitate public awareness and exhibition of this important artistic medium. As a group, we are also committed to exploring alternate modes for the public exhibition of virtual reality artworks. Stay tuned for our first experiments!
