This is the first implementation of AR crossing over into Second Life. Originally created for the Australian National Portrait Gallery, CPII uses QR codes (effective as Web codes and fiducial markers) to call forth augments from virtual worlds. In this case, codes call forth memories of artitsts I have known and loved in Second Life over the last 7 years. Their appearance on my cell phone or handheld reminds me of a sentimental photo or Baroque locket, and conveys a sense of intimacy. http://www.portrait.gov.au/exhibit/doppelganger/4_artwork.php
