Unreal City

AR experience

In response to the UK’s lockdown restrictions, Dazed partnered with Acute Art to present Unreal City, London’s biggest public AR art festival.

Site-specific artworks from the likes of Olafur Eliasson, Cao Fei, Nina Chanel Abney, Tomás Saraceno, Alicja Kwade, Koo Jeong A, and Marco Brambilla were seen by audiences around the world through the Acute Art app, which invited users to not only become viewers but curators of their own cultural experiences at a time when they needed it most.

Storytelling continued through a series of articles on Dazed Digital, plus a series of free talks and workshops titled Unreal Live, hosted by AnOther Magazine’s Editor Sophie Bew, Dazed Studio’s Thomas’ Gorton and The Serpentine’s Hans Ulrich Obrist.
