Along with the exhibition a poster was printed in DIN A2 size to give all the participants the possibility of the Augmented Reality experience without visiting the exhibition in situ. Additionally the daily AR experience gets published on the Instagram channel @ar_advent.
The exhibition aims at providing a platform for illustrators and animators to show their work in an immersive setting. Some took their first steps into AR, testing the possibilities of narration within this new medium.
Locating the show at a public place like the central station was crucial to the idea of addressing a broad audience. The project also strengthened the network within the creative industry as for some submissions illustrators teamed up with animators along with musicians or sound designers.
