Manifest.AR invades the Venice Bienniale!

The Manifest.AR cyberartist group is delighted to announce the artworks
for the:
Venice Biennial 2011 Augmented Reality Intervention
http://www.manifestar.info/venicebiennial2011/
June 1st – November 27, 2011

“As “one of the world’s most important forums for the dissemination and
‘illumination’ about the current developments in international art” the
54th Biennial of Venice could not justify its reputation without an
uninvited Augmented Reality infiltration. In order to “challenge the
conventions through which contemporary art is viewed” we will construct
the virtual AR pavilions directly amongst the national pavilions in the
Giardini. And be warned: virtual walls are insubstantial – some artworks
have already spread to the Piazza San Marco and may take over all of
Venice!”

AR Artworks by:
Sander Veenhof, Tamiko Thiel, John Craig Freeman, Lily and Honglei,
Will Pappenheimer,  Naoko Tosa, Mark Skwarek, John Cleater
