    The GIFT project: Using Artcodes to create monuments for a departed future

    Following on from last week’s introduction to the GIFT project, Karin Ryding from IT University Copenhagen introduces you to one of its sub-projects: Artcodes, customisable scannable markers that allow you to blend your physical exhibition with digital content.
