Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colours flowers, so does art colour life.
― John Lubbock
What is Ukiyosk?
Ukiyosk is a unique concept of integrating a shelf hosting books, audio albums and others with Augmented Reality to provide a realistic feel of a store. On scanning the TIGER image imprinted on each of the artwork with an AR Application, the image would emerge as a real interactive object or a video directing to Ukiyosk (The Virtual Bookstore) having options to purchase either digital (Flipbooks) or Paperbacks.
Our hosting partners may place this 'shelf' either in digital or print format (wall hanging, portrait, canvas, coloured print out, pillows, mugs etc.) in their homes, outlets or any other networks and garner readers or viewers for the books. We have a tracking mechanism by which we will record the sales from our partners and provide them with their due remuneration for. In other words, each of our hosting partner would behave as an individual Virtual Bookstore.
Simply, buy the brilliant artworks as decorative pieces in your house, office or outlet, and at the same time access all Flipbooks, Paperbacks and Hardbacks available at our bookstore.
Our mission is to help artists share their art on a global platform. We encourage and invite artists to showcase their limitless creativity to the world and use augmented reality to take the art to every doorstep.
Our vision is to make Ukiyosk a global e-commerce platform for artists around the globe where they can showcase and sell their art using new technology and imagination.
