Artery: Metaverse Makeovers Article


The Australia Council for the Arts blog Artery profiles Thea Baumann and the Metaverse Makeovers project we’re currently working on:

Most manicurists define bling as painting little pictures or designs on fingernails, or perhaps applying tiny decals or imitation jewels.

It could be called art, at a pinch, but what if you could look at your nails via webcams or a downloadable app, and see designs jump off your hands thanks to a dynamic augmented reality (AR) holographic effect?
