A mixed media art exhibit currently being held in San Francisco has some unique experiences to offer visitors. That includes the ‘Paper Metaverse’ which happens to be an augmented reality-based exhibit conceived by Nick Philip of the art collective Imaginary Foundation, the website VRScout reported. The exhibit can be considered the perfect amalgamation of classic literature that is getting a new lease of life thanks to futuristic AR technology. Put in simple terms, visitors will be required to scan the paperback novels to experience AR-powered NFTs.
“This installation uses the forgotten pages of yesterday’s novels to tell a collection of stories for tomorrow’s shifting reality,” said the Imaginary Foundation on Facebook. “By contrasting an environment built from thousands of upcycled paperback novels with a dynamic layer of augmented reality activated NFTs, the Paperback Metaverse fuses the physical, the virtual, and the sculptural.”
Those currently in San Francisco can opt for a first-hand experience of Paper Metaverse along with the several other mixed media installations currently being showcased at the exhibition. The event is being held at The Drawing Room Annex, 780 Valencia Street SF, and will run through November 13th. The gallery is open from 11-7 PM from Tuesday to Sunday and from 11-9 PM on Fridays and Saturdays.

With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
