The Blue Violet River for Abandon Normal Devices Festival, 2021

The Blue Violet River is the world's first Augmented Reality boat tour - hijacking the conventional guided tour and weaving together sci-fi, environmental themes and local architecture into a future fairytale. Exhibited in June 2021 at AND festival in the UK, it imagines a peaceful alternate future of evolved humanity, freed from an unsustainable past and tuned into an esoteric core consciousness. Truly haptic meets digital, AR layers shapeshift the skyline through custom built viewfinders on the decks of the ferry while esoteric dancers cast protective spells around passengers with custom flags waving overhead.
