During preparation for the International Sculpture Symposium | Interaction Bila Tserkva 2019 and opening of the Contemporary Sculpture Boulevard, BOORYAK curatorial team aimed to help the viewer to better understand the meaning of each sculpture and invite everyone to interact with art objects in public space. The solution to this challenge was proposed by Softuup IT company, the developer of mobile applications with the effect of augmented reality (AR).
Mobile application Bila Tserkva AR is the first product presented in Ukraine which animated sculptures in the public space. Augmented reality technology contributes to the perception of information about the objects around us and, thus, this mobile application helped our team to find the solution of how to involve the viewer. Today, augmented reality technologies allow us to expand the boundaries of creativity and provide the opportunity to look at things from the different point of view.
You can experience the effect of augmented reality in Bila Tserkva city at Contemporary Sculpture Boulevard, which was opened in May 2019. Each sculpture has different interaction scenario: gaming, constructor, animation, puzzle - all in order to make memorable experience of immersion in augmented reality.

The application is available in two languages: Ukrainian and English. After the interaction, you can leave a comment and share photos on social networks.
