FOCUS / Ars Electronica Futurelab
A contribution to “The Beauty Myth” is an app developed by the Ars Electronica Futurelab. After taking photos of objects on display in the exhibition, users of the FOCUS application have a convenient way to upload them to the FOCUS website and share them. The point: each of these round pictures focuses attention on only a particular sector of the image. And there’s an additional option available at the FOCUS Terminal on site: using the image to make a button. The museum shop has all you need packaged in a FOCUS Kit: a handout containing info about the exhibition and the app, instructions for making the button, and, of course, a blank button.
