BREATHE Artivive x artèQ

Window Wonderland

Taking place through the winter season, The Junction 2nd Annual Window Wonderland, will transform the Junction neighbourhood into an outdoor gallery that is interactive, engaging, and magical. The exhibition will use local and international artists and augmented reality to create an impressive display of public art. The use of augmented reality will allow the animation to be overlaid on top of the window painting. The two mediums will be superimposed to create the interactive piece.

The general concept of the augmented reality (AR) mural will be a joint effort by the mural artist, the animator, and the business owner. The animator will have creative freedom to design the animation based on the mural artwork, with final approval by The Junction BIA.

Artworks: 10+
Year: 2021
Winners will be paired with a mural artist and a small business to transform a window in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto, Canada into a multi-media visual installation.

Visualizing Bias With Augmented Reality

Goethe-InstitutGray AreaFotomuseum Winterthur, and Artivive have launched an open call for artists, designers, and the general public to submit creative representations on the subject of bias through technology. These should articulate our ongoing concerns with technology’s growing ability to alter people’s visual perception of reality.

The open call is part of the project “Image + Bias” that critically engages with the cultural realities being increasingly determined by imperceptible technologies that show no sign of reducing their propagation of digitally twisted, fictional, and discriminatory representations.

Artworks: 10+
Year: 2021
Winning Projects: will be displayed in an interactive online gallery and at the Goethe-Institut, Gray Area, and the Fotomuseum Winterthur.

The GerillAR art project is redefining the concept of a poster by using modern technology (AR). The idea behind the project is based on how people use and appreciate advertising spaces today. With the devaluation of poster art in our modern world, art posters no longer have a place in the city. What else could be used for the surface that contains the content of the poster? Why not use it to turn the streets of the city into an exhibition which is accessible to anyone quickly and easily? All the posters were inspired by the city of Budapest. After the viewer scans the posters, together with the artist, he/she can see a new built or organic environment in Budapest’s history, or even site-specific characteristics.

A New Poster Movement

Animated posters create a new narrative space: typography and images break their bidimensional boundaries and start moving in the space of the viewer. The AR tool Artivive allows creatives to include a digital layer of animations and sound to their poster design. The original haptics of the poster design stays untouched while the digital layer can be unlocked only through a smartphone and tablet. Posters become a medium for performative art. Advertisements become an artwork, a performance to be experienced.

How do AR, VR, and MR collide with our RR (Real Reality)? The group art exhibition REALITIES asked artists to reflect on our perception of reality; how the attributes, feelings, and knowledge taken from “this” reality to “another” transform, modify, or stay the same. What happens if we merge realities and they overlap? This open call invites artists to touch on the topics of: love, humanism, the digital world, video games, country, Vienna, specific location, etc.
