As an extension to the Vivid Sydney Hidden ARt Augmented Garden installation at Kings Cross, the public will be invited to unlock Hidden ARt at the Quayside Room, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia this Saturday the 16th June.
From 9 am – 5 pm, you’ll be able to see Augmented Reality artworks by TAFE NSW students from TAFE NSW Mt Druitt and Nepean.
Mixing real-world art with computer-generated art and sculptures, students have used texture, light, colour and modern media to create a visual wonderland exploring people, places, planets and dimensions at one of the city’s most loved creative spaces.
Students studying the Diploma of Games, Diploma of Photography and Photo Imaging, and Diploma of Screen and Media along with their teachers have explored other dimensions to their work and have gone in search of people, places and planets that explore the visual possibilities.
“Augmented reality provides an immersive lens for artists to showcase their work,” said Paul Willey, Chief Operating Officer, AR Technologies. “It breaks the barriers of a traditional canvas, providing a new medium for artists to experiment with and amplify their artwork stories. We’re really excited to collaborate with TAFE NSW to showcase some of their upcoming artists”.
iPads will be available at the event to view the Hidden ARt.
Location: Quayside Room, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia
