AR Cities is an annual project by Street Gallery. Every fall, we breathe motion into digital art created by artists from all over the world. The concept behind AR Cities is to blend digital art with the urban environment, creating a unique experience.
In 2018, we started working on the creation of a WebAR application for the Street Gallery, which was followed by exhibitions, and installations in different cities, streets, and galleries. Drawing from this experience, the concept of AR Cities was born - a venture uniting different cities and artists worldwide under the festival.
2023, The beginning:
In 2023, the festival will integrate augmented reality technology and digital art in the streets. Our aim is to explore urban architecture and how can be exhibited digital art into the physical world.
M. Abashidze Avenue, Exhibition walls of Street Gallery
Dates: December 15 - February 1
Types of AR exhibition:
GPS Tracking (Location-based sculpture):
Go to the location address, turn on the location service on your phone, open the link provided in the exhibition description and search the AR artwork.
Image tracking (3D Sculpture or Video + Sound):
Scan the QR code with your phone's camera to access the AR link. The Instagram filter automatically recognizes the artwork, looks for a flat surface, and pastes the 3D sculpture. You can scale the artifact, zoom in/out, and change the sculpture location.
QR code to IG AR effect (3D Sculpture or Motion + Sound);
Scan the QR code using your phone's camera to access the link. The WebAR automatically recognizes the artwork and plays the video with sound.
