In conjunction with the ninth edition Singapore Art Week 2021 (SAW), Alvin Tan, co-founder of homegrown arts and design collective, PHUNK, launches the “Wild Critters” project, using technology to curate a fully immersive creative experience in the art showcase.
The “Wild Critters” project draws on the idea of endangered species often hidden from sight, with five artists collaborating to create new species of rare creatures for everyone to spot through an Augmented Reality (AR) Art Installation.
Real or imagined? These endangered species neither exist in the physical nor metaphysical reality. They are fictional endangered critters waiting to be discovered, but only through scanning a QR code with an AR filter on Instagram can they then be captured and shared through social media.
Uncover these ethereal endangered creatures hiding among us at the Singapore Art Week 2021 from 22 till 30 January 2021. The “Wild Critters” project will live on after SAW with virtual AR filter links launched for the public to catch these artist creations island-wide.
