Sprayers Takeover is a smartphone application that uses the technology of augmented reality. Enabling young generations to spray tags and graffiti on the surfaces of the museum and create a new perspective upon the historical collection of Museo Marino Marini.

From an art seen only in very private exhibition space, the device connects more classical art form with a sub-culture of street art more connected to youngsters.
