CYBER ARTS FESTIVAL / VIRTUAL EXHIBITION
MANIFEST.AR @ ICA
Boston Cyberarts Festival 2011
April 22–May 8
Manifest.AR is an international artists collective working with emergent forms of augmented reality as interventionist public art. The group sees this medium as a way of transforming public space and institutions by installing virtual objects and artworks. Utilizing this technology as artwork is an entirely new proposition and explores all that we know and experience as the mixture of the real and the hyperreal. Physically, nothing changes; the audience can simply download and launch an Augmented Reality Browser app on their iPhone or Android and aim the devicesí camera to view three-dimensional art objects integrated into the physical world. Manifest.AR has created a virtual exhibition in and around Bostonís Institute of Contemporary Art during the Boston Cyberarts Festival 2011.
