Event details

Learn about the world around you by changing how you see it! Augmented reality, or AR, superimposes computer-generated images over a user’s view of the real-world, thus enhancing one’s current perception of reality. The gallery walls will be blank, leaving the exhibition only to be viewed through a free Alliance app through the App Store. Use your phone or tablet to produce augmented reality through a series of marker-based targets  and bring to life megalithic creatures, board games, asteroids and more!

Featuring a total of 18 digital works, Augmented Reality is a virtually interactive, digital exhibition designed and curated by August Taylor. Taylor is a sophomore student majoring in Computer Science with a focus in Cyber Security at Florida Polytechnic University. He currently has over 20 industry certifications, most of which were achieved while at Dunbar High School’s Microsoft Academy.

Blur the line between the virtual and the real and enjoy light refreshments at our opening reception on Friday, June 1.

Meet August during a conversational walk and talk through the gallery on June 9. Take a peek into how this technology transforms how we work, learn, play and connect with almost everything around us. And how this is just the beginning.

Exhibits: June 1 – 23
Opening Reception: June 1 • 5-7 p.m.
Artist Talk: June 9 • 6 p.m.

Receptions and gallery talks are open to the public and do not require tickets or reservations. While the gallery admission is free, a $5 suggested donation keeps Alliance programming affordable and accessible.
