A new augmented reality app centred around the David Bowie Is V&A exhibition has been released today, on the star’s birthday. British actor Gary Oldman narrates the app, which turns the award-winning show into an immersive experience. Users can explore the exhibition by journeying through various rooms, interacting with costumes, videos, lyrics and original artworks. Different artefacts can be found in each room under one common theme. The Yamamoto room draws attention to Bowie’s love of “hikinuki” – the Japanese method of quick costume change – whereas the Blackstar room questions the subject of religion. The exhibition first opened at the popular London museum in 2013, focusing on the late icon’s life and music. It was later seen around the world as part of an international tour. Bowie and Oldman were both raised in south London and became friends after meeting in the late 1980s. After his death, Oldman accepted Bowie’s 2016 Brit Icon award on his behalf.
