Augmented Reality can change the way museum visitors experience and interpret ancient art. “A Victorious Athlete in Augmented Reality” is an app that reveals the lost history of one of the Getty Villa’s most prized possessions, a life-sized bronze statue from ancient Greece. The app encourages inquiry and rewards visitors with a deeper understanding of a spectacular museum object. It is part of the extended series “Colors of Antiquity – seeing ancient polychromy through Augmented Reality.”
