Artivive GmbH (referred to as “Artivive”, “we”, “our”, “ours”, “us”), is an Austrian startup founded in 2017, aiming to change how art is created and consumed. Artivive is the leading platform for augmented reality art, where artists can create new dimensions of art by enhancing physical artworks with a digital layer. Our vision is to bridge the gap between classical and digital art and to provide museums and galleries with the infrastructure to deliver an immersive experience for their visitors.
Artivive consists of two components, the Bridge by Artivive content management tool, which allows users to link the artwork to its digital layer; and the Artivive App, the visualization component that enables the AR art experience. The Artivive App is freely available for mobile and tablet on Google Play and in the App Store.
Artivive also refers to our proprietary products, software and services that together represent our technology service offering currently marketed under the name “Artivive”. Consisting of various components.
