Numerous Okanagan artists are working on an exciting project to transform Bernard Avenue into an augmented reality art exhibit. The 2D digital art, animation, and music experts aim to unveil the production for the public later this summer.
The residents would be able to get a glimpse of the AR Bernard project from July to September. Close to 21 local digital illustrators, animators, and musicians are working on seven different AR work as a part of the project.
Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, Kelowna Art Gallery, and Maud Collective are collaborating to bring the project to life. They had recently selected the artists and grouped them into teams, each with a digital illustrator, an animator, and a musician.
“The use of augmented reality will allow the animation to be overlaid on top of the image. The two mediums will be superimposed to create the interactive piece. The animation will feature music by a local musician/band,” stated the Alternator Centre.
The digital illustrator will bring the two-dimensional pieces of art to life from the canvas. The animator will put in the animated elements. And finally, the musician will add the beats to finish the exhibit.
The artists are currently rendering and creating storyboards for the project. They have until the festival’s launch on July 1 to conclude the artwork’s creation and installation. The festival will run through the next few months, ending on September 7.
