Unauthorized Holographic sculpture placed in Bellevue Art Museum

Microsoft User Experience Designer DongYoon Park has posted a video which raises interesting questions about mixed reality and communal spaces.

In the video he places a typography-inspired sculpture in the atrium and rooftop sculpture garden of the Bellevue Art Museum created using his Typography Insight for HoloLens app.

The sculpture is interactive (though at present just for Park) meaning HoloLens users can move, rotate and collectively evolve it.

With hardly anyone having a HoloLens and no real shared virtual space created yet, the sculpture at present only exists for Park, but one can imagine a future where this will not be the case, and any person could annotate a public space shared by others, which raises interesting questions around ownership and intellectual property rights.
