Thursday, 14 May: Acute Art present WUNDERKAMMER, a new AR project by Olafur Eliasson available for free via the Acute Art app.

WUNDERKAMMER is an intriguing collection of natural elements, small artworks, and experiments from the artist’s studio rendered in augmented reality. Presented at a time where movement and physical togetherness are restricted, WUNDERKAMMMER invites you to sculpt your immediate environment by adding objects and atmospheres to your personal space.

Olafur Eliasson, artist said:

“Today, where physical distancing guides our lives, it’s as crucial as ever that we surround ourselves with things and atmospheres that really matter to us. All elements of the WUNDERKAMMER play a role in my life. Some are objects that we normally take for granted – and I feel they should be celebrated like the wonders they, in fact, are. Other elements in the collection will be more experimental, such as light sculptures and objects that are invisible to the eye until you ‘catch’ them with your hand. The artwork is about challenging our perception of the everyday and actively welcoming that which lies on the boundary between the known and the unknown. It is about creating spaces that meld the everyday and the extraordinary – spaces that evoke vivid perceptions and embodied engagement.”
