Two-dimensional artwork became three at TEDxAlcoi in Spain, thanks to the power of an app designed by technologists at local university, Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV).

Dr. Jordi Linares of UPV brought some of the augmented reality tools designed by his team at the university, including one which used an iPad app to transform the works of famed Spanish artists Pep Carrió and Isidro Ferrer into 3D interactive experiences — using animation, video, and games.

In a video about the technology, Linares expresses his admiration for physical books, paintings, and photographs, and describes how this technology is designed to work with these mediums, rather than replace them.

This blending of established and new technology fit the theme of TEDxAlcoi, at which patterns and innovations in architecture, journalism, graphic design, computer science, and music were discussed, amongst many other things.
