TECH



IMMERSIVE ROOM - REFIK ANADOL
THE REFIK ANADAOL IMMERSIVE ROOM WAS CREATED USING SUPER HIGH DEFINITION LED TECHNOLOGY, USING VISUALS CREATED FROM IMAGE DATA AND MACHINE LEARNING. THE EXPERIENCE WAS VERY WELL RECEIVED AND GENERATED A HUGE BUZZ WITH THE PUBLIC AND IN THE MEDIA.
 







VR ART EXPERIENCE - OCULUS
ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR GUEST EXPERIENCES WAS THE VR ZONE, SHOWCASING INCREDIBLE INTERACTIVE ARTWORK BY YANG YONGLIANG 杨泳梁. THIS ARTWORK WAS ENABLED AND BROUGHT TO LIFE BY OCULUS TECHNOLOGY.
 








AUGMENTED REALITY, NFC AND DIGITAL AUTHENTICATION - ZHEN
BY PARTNERING WITH ZHEN, WE WE WERE ABLE TO BRING DIGITAL AUTHENTICATION TECHNOLOGY TO THE SHOW. USERS WERE ABLE TO SCAN ARTWORK ON THEIR PHONE USING NFC (NEAR FIELD COMMUNICATIONS) TECH, WHICH THEN ACTIVATED AN AUGMENTED REALITY EFFECT FOR USERS TO ENJOY AND ENGAGE WITH THE ARTWORK. IT ALSO PROVIDES A DIGITAL CERTIFICATE AND ALL THE ARTWORKS PROVENANCE. 





DIGITAL DISPLAY - SAMSUNG
DIGITAL ART FAIR PARTNERED WITH SAMSUNG TO BRING OUR DIGITAL ARTWORKS TO LIFE. THE FAIR CONSISTED OF OVER 70 QLED AND 'THE FRAME' SCREENS. THE DETAIL, COLOUR AND BRIGHTNESS OF THESE SCREENS BROUGHT THE ARTWORK TO LIFE.

 

 

 

 

 




NFT MARKETPLACE -REFINABLE
IN 2021 WE PARTNERED WITH REFINABLE TO PROVIDE A MODERN, EASY TO USE NFT PLATFORM TO SUPPORT SALES OF OUR DIGITAL ART. ARTWORK WAS SOLD IN ETHEREUM AND WE HELPED TO INTRODUCE PEOPLE TO THE WORLD OF CRYPTOCURRENCY BY ONBOARDING GUESTS WITH A CRYPTO WALLET.
