What are the hidden things, the unseen spaces, and the lost stories? Are these things considered important or valuable? How is this metric created, and by whom?
Over the summer of 2020, the Centre For Art Tapes teamed up with ARt@LARGE and the Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival to commission five artists to create original augmented reality projects in Halifax, exploring themes around seeing and exploring the unseen. Considering themes of connection, community, identity, and intimacy, the selected artists have created expansive works that invite viewers to step into alternate worlds, either on-site or from their homes in HRM.
The artists used the augmented reality app LARGE to create augmented reality installations for this exhibition. The works are viewable through the LARGE app (available from the Apple app store or Google Play store). All works can be located and accessed within the LARGE app from within a 10-kilometre radius, encouraging the audience to visit the sites in Halifax and Dartmouth where our artists have planted their work, or view the works remotely from within HRM.
How it works:
- Download the LARGE app (free for iOS and Android devices) and create your account
- Your screen acts as a portal - explore the space around you to engage with the UNSEEN exhibition's content
- Find the Pins (‘AR POPS’), a.k.a., pieces by our artists, on the map within a 10km range in HRM. Click on each catch to unlock content
- Take a screenshot or video viewing one of the pieces, tag @centreforarttapes and @artatlarge on Instagram, and be entered to win a one-of-a-kind CFAT tote bag
Create in the LARGE app and share with us:
- Explore the assets gallery and create your own 3D pin
- Screen capture your photo or video to share your creation
- Upload photos or videos as Instagram posts or stories, tag @centreforarttapes and @artatlarge
CFAT would like to thank ARt@Large for their partnership and support in this project, the CFAT Programming Committee, Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival and the Canada Council for the Arts.
