AR in the museum space seems like interesting means of questioning institutional authority.
Other issue of AR artworks in the museum is that due to copyrights some institutions simply ban mobile devices so if an artist showing at the museum has an AR work a means of permitting mobile devices in the museum space must be negotiated. Becomes more complicated if that AR artwork is not officially recognized/invited by museum.
