We wanted to make the process of identifying and retrieving information about artworks easy.

How could we do that without having to type in search criteria, artist names etc?

Our solution is to add a small electronic tag that can be read by simply holding your mobile phone close to the tag.

The arTag branded RFID tag, approx. 2cm square and 0.5mm thick, holds a unique code that is read by your phone and linked to the artwork you are registering. The arTag is placed on the rear of the artwork and from that point anybody using the arTag app, or anyone who would like to download it, can simply place their phone next to the tag to call up the artwork information.
