On the occasion of Timișoara being proclaimed European Capital of Culture in 2023, we worked together to animate the beautiful illustrations of the Romanian artist Dan Ungureanu through a collaboration with our international animators. These illustrations capture the essence of the city’s architectural heritage and have been transformed into captivating AR posters and postcards, ready to be brought to life with a simple scan using the Artivive app.



A Fusion of Art and Innovation: The Timișoara x Artivive Project

As you scan the animated posters with Artivive, the experience is taken one step further. A voiceover accompanies the visuals, narrating the tales behind the buildings and shedding light on their historical significance, as well as providing a brief introduction to Timișoara itself, letting viewers in on the city’s vibrant spirit and cultural charm.


The Timișoara x Artivive project is a great example of how to blend culture and innovation. The collaboration bridges the past and the present, inviting us to experience history in a whole new dimension. It’s an ode to Timișoara’s architectural heritage, a celebration of creativity, and a testament to the limitless possibilities of technology.


A Sneak Peek into the Future: AR Beyond Borders

As the project unfolds, it not only reveals the beauty of Timișoara but also sparks excitement about the potential of augmented reality in art, culture, and storytelling. The amalgamation of artistic vision and technological innovation offers a glimpse into a future where reality and imagination intertwine seamlessly. 


We invite you to scan the pictures below with the Artivive app and step into the enchanting world of Timișoara’s augmented reality tales. As the European Capital of Culture, the city embraces innovation while cherishing its past. Thanks to the collaborative magic of Artivive, these animated AR posters promise to be windows to a world where history dances with the present.
