DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with The Real-Fake, the University Galleries presents Really Fake, an exhibition of augmented reality site-specific installations throughout the William Paterson University campus. Augmented reality is an experimental technology where viewers can see objects in a real-world setting using their phone camera as a viewer. Really Fake places 11 different site-specific sculptures on the University campus; viewers will go on a kind of treasure hunt to experience the artworks. This exhibition has been curated by Michael Rees, associate professor of art, and Chris Manzione, a 2006 graduate of William Paterson.

A panel discussion with the curators will be held on Thursday, November 17, at 12:30 p.m. in Ben Shahn Hall, Room 146 at William Paterson University.
