Art Meets Education
Art Meets Education (AME) is a German charitable NGO that supports Filipino children in low-income neighborhoods to enable them to attend school. To this end, AME markets high-quality prints: Creative pictures ta- ken during photography workshops by underprivileged children from five to nine years old. Each of these printed photographs tells a unique and very personal story. But there are barriers, because these personal stories and information about the little artists are not transported by the photos alone. This led to the question: how can we leave the analog medium untouched while adding more information to it? For this master’s thesis, a mobile augmented reality app was developed that interactively arranges artist’s profiles and other digital information next to the respective photo, thus creating a clear added value for supporters and donors of AME.
