“Are you gonna see me flying now?”

This is what four-year-old Mikel asked as he welcomed visitors to our art exhibition a few months ago. He wanted to show them his artist statement, a video where he talks about himself as an artist and mentions his flying skills as well. This video was made available to visitors though Augmented Reality (AR), and Mikel was exited to share it.

I talked about Mikel's experiences with AR at the London International Conference on Education, where I presented a paper on using digital materials as curatorial tools with young children. You can read the full paper from the conference proceedings here:
