DAILY | AUGMENTED REALITY TOUR | London: Unreal City | FREE
An event every day that begins at 00:00, repeating until April 30, 2021
Whether London or Lisbon, reality kind of sucks these days. Augmented reality, on the other hand, is a whole other story. Here’s what the organizers of this one say:
“It hasn’t been a great few months for museums, what with the pandemic shutting many of them down and forcing the rest to greatly limit visitors. But a new, well-timed art exhibit went on display last month in London, and no reservations or masks were required.
Unreal City was an augmented reality art exhibit presented by Acute Art and Dazed Media. It took place along the Southbank of the River Thames, featuring 36 different “sculptures” that visitors could only see through a smartphone app.”
Even though the exhibit itself is down, you can still check out eight minutes of its highlights, from anywhere in the world that has Youtube, indefinitely. It’s creepy af, but what isn’t these days.
