Created by Frog in San Francisco, CA , 2018

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Spring 2018 special exhibition, “Rene Magritte: The Fifth Season,” contained an “Interpretive Gallery” inspired by the visual puns and paradoxes found in Magritte’s late-period works. The Interpretive Gallery presents a series of altered and augmented “windows.” Each window invites visitors to be “seen,” while simultaneously obstructing and alerting their perception of reality.

With the use of advanced, depth-sensing cameras and motion-tracking technology, the digital scenes in the windows draw on Magritte’s visual strategies. They also add a temporal twist, engaging the visitor in a brief journey by suspending and altering reality and perception. The combination of visual design and human-computer interaction creates a seamless experience activated by the presence of the visitor.
