Tech Giant Apple Unveils AR Artworks in World’s Six Cities

All three sessions are available beginning August 10

Visitors to the worlds six mega cities — San Francisco, New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo — will soon be able to experience artworks in augmented reality (AR), thanks to an upcoming Apple initiative.

The experiential art walks are among the three sessions Apple recently announced as part of its art-based ‘Today at Apple’ augmented reality experiences, called [AR]T.

The AR artworks live as a visual layer on the cityscape and are experienced via a walk with an iPhone in these major cities.

They include works by some of the world’s premier contemporary artists — Nick Cave, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Cao Fei, John Giorno, Carsten Höller and Pipilotti Rist.

The interactive walks that seek to connect participants to public spaces such as London’s Trafalgar Square, San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Gardens or New York’s Grand Army Plaza in Central Park are co-curated by Apple and US-based New Museum.

Another free session, available at all Apple Stores, will get attendees hands-on with whimsical objects and immersive sounds. “Using Swift Playgrounds, anyone can learn how to create their own AR experiences in this free 90-minute [AR]T Lab,” Apple said in a statement.

The third session spans all Apple stores worldwide.

All three sessions are available beginning August 10. (IANS)
