Event description

'CITY UNSEEN' A New [AR]t Experience | Fall 2018
We are excited to announce our largest project to date. CITY UNSEEN is a citywide public art project which will ignite the landscape of Downtown Orlando and open artistic borders by launching Augmented Reality [AR] experiences and permanent virtual installations, incorporating artistic mediums and technological advances into a new, exciting form of creative expression which will enhance our conceptual and experiential frameworks.
There is a technological revolution taking place in the realm of computer-generated imagery. Our project is designed to bring one of these advancements to the heart of Orlando. Known as Augmented Reality [AR], this technology overlays computer-generated images, sounds, or other data on a user’s real-world environment. The project will enhance viewers’ perspectives on art, dimensional reality, and perception, adding another layer of cultural significance to the downtown and Greater Orlando region. City Unseen will initially take root in downtown Orlando with a number of public installations and murals around the city that will be enhanced with embedded augmented reality components which can be viewed with a mobile device. The works will be designed by artists from around the world and implemented by technology professionals, and also including talented students based in Orlando.
We envision this long-term project to evolve into one of Central Florida’s globally recognized fine arts destinations, drawing from the millions of visitors traveling here to further explore Downtown Orlando. City Unseen gives Orlando the possibility of pioneering an international arts movement that questions how we experience art by expanding the way we navigate the engagement with a creative process that inherently fuses science and art. Through three-dimensional immersive experiences, viewers will find that AR is not about disconnecting from reality; it’s about incorporating numerous artistic mediums and technological advances into a new, exciting form of creative expression.
