City Unseen : A New [AR]t Experience

Snap! Orlando presents ‘CITY UNSEEN,’ a bold and innovative augmented reality [ AR ] citywide public art installations, fusing large scale works by internationally renowned artists with cutting edge technology.

City Unseen : A New [AR]t Experience. Presented and curated by Snap! Orlando. There is a technological revolution taking place in the realm of computer-generated imagery. Our grant proposal is designed to bring one of these advancements to the heart of Orlando. Known as Augmented Reality [AR], it is a technology that overlays computer-generated images, sounds, or other data on a user’s real-world environment. City Unseen is a public art project designed to push the artistic boundaries of this new medium to connect Orlando to a global conversation about how to use emerging technology to create higher forms of art and educational experiences. 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 working with talented students based in Orlando.

The goal of the project is to provide unique, innovative experiences that challenge commonly held notions of reality for both Florida residents and tourists. We envision this long-term project to evolve into one of Central Florida’s  globally recognized entertainment 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. Reveal date Friday, November 2, 2018. (Opening night of exhibition at Snap! Space, 7-10pm.) Project event occurs citywide 24/7, as the project is a permanent immersive experience on a daily basis throughout the year, and into the future.
