The Alternate Realities: Interactive Exhibition is a showcase of cutting-edge technologies that tell documentary stories in new ways.
This year we welcome two projects that use the emerging medium of Augmented Reality to bring to life powerful stories around us. Soon to permeate our lives and augment our surroundings, this new tech creates digital overlays around the objects we see in front of us. In the hands of the two artists in our interactive exhibition it is used to take you further into hidden stories of love and art. See Lawren Harris: Where The Universe Sings and Wikileaks: A Love Story.
We also explore the visual and tactile medium of the graphic novel, but this time via a screen. Touch, tap, swipe or scroll your way through two very different stories that will take you back in time and show you the meaning of memory. See Tell Me Your Secrets and These Memories Won't Last.
In the 150th year of its independence Canada has contributed contrasting but equally meaningful projects via the medium of web-documentary. Bear witness to the testimony of comfort women who survived enslavement in WW2. Or explore the streets Bloorcourt, a vibrant community that acts as an exemplar of the diversity of immigrant neighbourhoods. See The Space We Hold and The World in Ten Blocks.
So, come to the Interactive Exhibition to discover reality enhancing experiences, lovingly crafted story worlds and social commentary from international artists that are using tech to transform factual storytelling.
The following projects will be featured in the Interactive section of the Alternate Realities Exhibition:
