Saltwater

Raphael Moreira Gonçalves

When the photograph is scanned using the Augment app on a smartphone, the sculpture appears. The photographic print is the only object connected to the augmented-reality 3D sculpture. It is also the only “physical” object retaining the sculpture’s aura. But the photograph also exists as a virtual image, so the sculpture can be made to appear on other supports.
