Twelve botanical gardens around the world have simultaneously become home of a new augmented reality art exhibition curated by Hadas Maor and Tal Michael Haring. “Seeing the invisible” is the first art show of its kind as it offers a hybrid experience between the physical and virtual world: only by actually visiting the botanical gardens can one truly appreciate each work.
This show combines the best part of both worlds. All locations showcase the same exhibition, but the artwork is augmented in different ways, taking into consideration the surrounding and backdrop of each particular garden. For that reason, each exhibit offers a unique experience, absolutely worth visiting.
“Seeing the invisible” features a total of 13 AR works by renowned artists, such as Ai Weiwei, Jakob Kudsk Steensen, Sarah Meyohas, El Anatsui, Pamela Rosenkranz, Mohammed Kazem and Sigalit Landau. Along with the involvement of Jerusalem Botanical Gardens and the Outset Contemporary Art Fund.
This is an opportunity for locals to enjoy international contemporary art during the current pandemic, but it’s also a sustainable way of experiencing art without disturbing the botanical gardens’ environment. One of the many possibilities that the digital world has given us. In fact, you can also check out the interactive, digital exhibition “Oasis” by Services Généraux.
Participating countries are Australia, Canada, the UK, Israel, South Africa, Scotland and the US. The AR contemporary exhibition has already debuted and it will be available until August next year. You’ll be able to enjoy it by downloading the exhibitions’ mobile app.
