With the aid of the Kusama Network, Canada created the world’s largest blockchain-based and augmented reality art experience.
Jessica Angel, a Colombian artist, has been at the vanguard of the world’s largest blockchain-based augmented reality art project, which is now on display in Vancouver, Canada. Voxel Bridge was created with the help of the Kusama Network and implemented by Spheroid Universe.
Kusama Assists in the Development of Blockchain-Based Augmented Reality Experiences
The underside of Vancouver’s Cambie Bridge’s south end has become a hotspot for innovative public art forums. Jessica Angel has transformed the area into a 19,000-square-foot installation that allows visitors to engage with art in three ways.
According to the statement, Voxel Bridge exists in three universes at the same time. Visitors may enjoy an Augmented Reality experience through a free app and “in real time” on the blockchain, in addition to a traditional real-world gallery under the Cambie Bridge.
The first portion uses the newest developments in Augmented Reality technology to provide a revolutionary audience experience. Twenty distinct interactive animations will introduce visitors to the world of blockchain and, in particular, the Kusama Network. They will use augmented reality to learn about Kusama and its history, which is known as the canary experimental network.
Angel has developed a direct real-time projection on the blockchain using live blockchain data as a creative tool. As a result, she has transformed “this abstract technological notion” into a representation that people can experience in real-time through the artwork.
The Blockchain’s and Kusama’s Roles
AR and DLT, two of the most groundbreaking technological breakthroughs in recent years, have joined together to create this unique art piece. According to the press release, spheroid Universe produced the augmented reality portion of the multi-sensory journey, while the Kusama Network is in charge of the blockchain.
According to Barrie Mowatt, President and Artistic Director of the Vancouver Biennale, Voxel Bridge is the world’s first art piece to work on DLT. The organization’s goal, according to Mowatt, is to bridge the gap between traditional public places and virtual reality, which is where AR and blockchain come in.
“The Vancouver Biennale is all about using art as a catalyst to learning, so if you don’t really have a clue about the latest tech buzzwords like blockchain, cryptocurrency, augmented or virtual realities, this art installation provides a really accessible and visually mesmerizing way to learn.”
