ARTAP
VIEW ART DIGITALLY ON YOUR OWN WALL

ARTAP by Helsinki Contemporary is an augmented reality based application which allows you to view realistic looking artworks on your wall in actual size as they would appear in real life. ARTAP is available for both iOS and Android devices.



GUIDE TO USING ARTAP



1. Download the ARTAP application on your mobile device.



A tablet device is recommended for the best viewing experience. Please note that your device needs to be online when you use the app. The app needs permission to use the camera and photos of your device to work correctly.

2. You can eithe scan the floor, a wall or an ARTAP wall spot marker.

Open the app, choose your preferred artwork and scan the floor in front of the wall where you wish to place the artwork, or a wall with visible features on it. ‘LIVE VIEW’ shows the artwork in a live camera mode and allows you to view the selected artwork on your device screen from multiple angles and distances.

3. When the scanning is complete, the artwork will appear on the scanned surface. If you scanned the floor, once the work is visible, position and align it to the wall with the help of the half-circle indicator. Adjust the height of the work with the slider on the right side of the screen.

4. Take a picture and share it.
