Article: Historical APPistemology

October 8, 2021 by Department of Art History

Liron Efrat recently published an article in the International Journal for Digital Art History about digital heritage and augmented reality in museums. Liron expands the individual analysis of augmented reality (AR) projects in the context of cultural heritage sites by conceptually adjusting the Expanded Field to map the varying modes of this cultural practice.

Liron Efrat is a PhD candidate (ABD) in the Department of Art History at the University of Toronto, where she researches Augmented Reality art. Her master’s thesis explores hybrids of art and pornography in contemporary photography, and her current research focuses on artistic hybrids that employ Augmented Reality technology, to better understand the role this technology plays in diminishing the division between the virtual and the real. Liron is also a resident scholar at the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto, and a data analyst and research assistant in the VR and AR project “Jewish Homelands.”
