 Unity: A Fringe Augmented Reality Experience

Image1

Description

Accessing world-leading, geospatial technology Taylors, a surveying firm, presents AuraVista AR which takes augmented reality experiences mainstream.

Taylors has joined forces with Melbourne-based artist Richard Payne to bring the first augmented reality public artworks to life at Fringe Festival. The internationally celebrated Richard Payne has collaborated with Taylors to create an interactive art piece titled 'Unity' which can only be seen and experienced via AuraVista AR at the Arts Centre, Melbourne. Composer Probir Dutt has provided the audio-track, creating a soundscape that compliments and elevates the complete AR experience.

The public pop-up art draws on themes of a united community via a shared explorative journey. The fully immersive artwork uses technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world on their smartphones. Passers-by will be prompted via footpath decals to view the one-of-kind-AR experience.

The first of a series of public art installations presented by AuraVista AR provides an opportunity for art-lovers and experience chasers to step into an AR world. The Richard Payne artwork transports the individual into a new realm; a neo-sensory, Blade Runner-esque, adventure that moves you past the limitations of what you can ordinarily see, to become a new physical and actual reality.

Part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
