ARTWORKS at Laman Seni 7 in Shah Alam are set to come alive, with murals being combined with augmented reality.

The move is part of a rejuvenation project undertaken by the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA).

Visitors will be able to scan QR codes, placed next to the murals, which will actualise the images through their phone screens.

Project manager Mohammad Afiq Tajul Ariffin said there would be QR codes next to 21 murals.

“Once scanned, the artworks can be seen through a filter on the Instagram application,” he said.

So far, he said, the 3D effects and augmented reality for two artworks had been completed.

MBSA Tourism and Culture section assistant director Aziahtul Sakdiah Mustapa said the project entitled ‘Enchanting Wonderland of Shah Alam’ would showcase the beauty of Shah Alam through various themes.

She said RM100,000 had been allocated for Laman Seni 7.

“MBSA will soon announce the winner of the Wall Battle Mural Competition and officially launch the augmented reality and 3D artworks” she added.

The murals include Shah Alam’s Mirror Lake, a dragon and a giant centipede.
