The project started with the curiosity of creating a surreal world to explore how we interact with inanimate objects and everyday surfaces.
Here is the mood board we created overtime for inspiration.
Goal of the project
The goal is to raise $5000 in 2 weeks and our project is successfully funded in April. It was awarded with Kickstarter Favorite project.
We imagine it could be a pop up event at a gallery space combining art and installations.
Here are some highlight interaction in the experience.
NYC Media Lab demo day 2017
We participated in the NYC Media Lab's Demo Day on Thursday, September 28. We got some good responses from the attendees, and met some interesting folks.
It was challenging for us to re-build the experience with new pros and shrink down to a tiny space.
Goethe Institute in Beirut | Lebanon
We partnered with the Goethe Institute, a German cultural institute with an office in Lebanon, to have our Kickstarter version of AVRA shown at the opening party for their new location. It was a challenge setting it up from all the way here in New York, but we got it done and heard good things from the attendees.
AVRA demo day | New York
For our backers, we had done a demo day invited our backers to be part of the developing and creative process. We got some great feedback from our backers. We got a chance to meet different people in the industry that are interested in the intersection of art and technology.
We showcased our project at the Living Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
