Sydney, April 9th ~ Melbourne, May 14th ~ Cairns, August 17th
In April and May 2011, (Un)seen Sculptures, a mobile 3D augmented reality art show, was staged in locations in Surry Hills, Sydney (as part of the Surry Hills Festival) and around the Melbourne CBD.
In August, a selection of works from the Sydney and Melbourne shows made a trip north to Cairns to grace that city’s Esplanade and be part of the Cairns Festival.
In addition to this, one of the artworks “migrated” from Sydney to Melbourne and made appearances in regional centres throughout Southern NSW and Victoria. Click on the Bufo’s Progress link at the top of this site for more details.
The shows featured works by Australian artists and international visitors from as far afield as the USA, UK, China, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands and Japan. The pieces themselves will traverse a wide range of styles and subjects: anything from characters from a traditional Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet lost in the metropolis; to an infestation of psychotropic toads; to a singing virtual tree; to an 18th-century GPS device.
