DIY Workshop #3 – “Augmented Reality Workshop”
Centre culturel canadien
February 01st, 2021 - February 28th, 2021
Our exhibition “Mounds and Voids: From Human to Global Scale” showcases renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. For decades, he travelled the world photographing industrial landscapes and man’s impact on the planet.
He quickly used innovative technologies such as 360° videos, 3D and augmented reality to document his excursions. In our exhibition “Mounds and Voids: From Human to Global Scale”, Edward Burtynsky presents three works in augmented reality, featuring impressive industrial objects.
One of these works represents one of the largest combustion engines in the world. This huge object could never have passed through the doors of our gallery, but you can see it virtually by projecting it into space thanks to a digital tablet.
For Edward Burtynsky, augmented reality is a new form of artistic expression that is revolutionizing photographic practices, as much as the transition from black and white to color photography.
