Sugarlift presented "1000 Paintings in Your Pocket" at the TED conference in Vancouver, BC to offer previews of paintings by emerging artists in augmented reality.
From April 15 to 19, 2019, Sugarlift presented its newly developed augmented reality app at TED2019’s Bigger Than Us conference in Vancouver, BC. Tech Playground was an exhibitor floor outside the mainstage that presents technological solutions for smarter homes. Through Sugarlift’s 1000 Paintings in Your Pocket exhibit, conference attendees had the chance to see hundreds of original paintings by emerging artists in the context of a living room space. The works were placed on a wall in real time and to scale, with Sugarlift’s gallery manager making recommendations using pattern recognition technology.
