PiQUE-NiQUE is a playful take on reclaiming the high street
About the work
PiQUE-NiQUE is part game, part instagram filter. The Instagram filter places three, digital humanoid figures into the real world – to have a virtual picnic anywhere you like! The filter also shares a bit of info about picnics and offers a light-hearted approach to how we can reclaim the high street.
You can find the PiQUE-NiQUE game by exploring this place [of mine]!
How to use the filter
To get started, point your camera at a large flat surface. Try to find somewhere that’s easily distinguishable from anything else in the sight of the camera – like the floor or a big table.
It's best to aim your camera in the direction of where you want to see the artwork appear before tapping 'Try filter’.
When the artwork appears, you can move it around the screen or change its size by pinching or expanding your fingers.
You’ll then see an instruction on your screen that says: 'tap to place'. This places the artwork in a virtual space, and you can then walk around, read the text, and take a picture or video.
