Carlos von den Hügeln was a French Bulldog who achieved fame as an artist during his lifetime. His work as a sculptor and performer is considered exemplary of Animal made- and Interspecies Art.
In his honor, he receives a monument in augmented reality in public space of Vienna, Saarbrücken, Kassel, Venice and New York. For this multifaceted digital monument, his cardboard objects were created as oversized in augmented virtual space and can be viewed via smartphone using an AR-App developed for this purpose. At ten locations that were significant for the life and work of Carlos von den Hügeln, his works will immortalize him forever in augmented reality.
In Vienna, a 3.5 km long pathway leads to six AR-Objects across the districts Brigittenau and Leopoldstadt, the former walking route of Carlos von den Hügeln. At the same time, AR-Objects will be set up at four other international art locations: the Giardini della Biennale in Venice, the Karlsaue in Kassel, the HBKsaar in Saarbrücken and the sculpture garden of the MoMA in New York.
