Today, every public space is simultaneously an augmented space. Virtual layering of data expands the physical space and brings forth new realms of possibilities. We wish to make this in-between space accessible for artistic interventions by anchoring virtual artworks to specific locations, channeling the ephemeral presence of an interruption or a glitch.
Fostering site-specificity and thinking with curatorial dispositions, WAVA aspires to open up the augmented layer to the public and artists alike, serving as a nomadic framework for virtual and physical communal gatherings across different cities and places.
