The Border Line Tunnel Augmented Reality Murals

Mon, Jul 3 2017 Free


The Borderline is a project running from March to May. It will cover a 200ft long wall under the campus of MIT with murals and magic.

The tunnel in question runs directly underneath Vassar St., connecting buildings 66 and E17. It is a tunnel commonly used by students throughout winter, or in particularly nasty weather. It’s always been seen as a useful connection to get from point A to point B. Through Borderline, we hope to transform this tunnel into a destination.

The murals have been dreamed up by over twenty-five MIT-affiliated artists. Artists will be painting murals throughout the duration of the project. The goal is to have one large, woven-together mural by May.

The magic comes in the form of augmented reality. Murals will have an AR integrated component that can be accessed by viewers through a mobile phone app.



This project is funded by Council of the Arts. Special thanks to Sam Magee.
