TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Art Spaces Inc. has launched a new augmented reality project.
On May 25, the public gathered at the Meis Plaza to launch a project called InterPlaces.
The project features artwork from 10 creators around the world.
Augmented reality gives visitors access to a new artistic environment from their phone.
Visitors can see the artist as well as other information about the work.
Sala Wong is one of the 10 creators representing both Terre Haute and ISU.
Wong said the idea for the project came to her during the Covid-19 lockdown as she wants to give people at home a way to see art.
She said an art project this year will give people the opportunity to discover more artists in Terre Haute.
“Bringing the work in such a way that we can use technology to spread to other places makes virtual travel possible,” Wong said. “Whoever lives elsewhere comes to Terre Haute and experiences what we have here.”
The InterPlaces exhibition will be open to the public until May 2023.
