Pallas Augmented Reality Animated Mural
Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) presents the augmented reality mural “Pallas // Nemea” by the artist Nikos Tsounakas and his team. The two murals can be found in two walls at Kalamiotou Street, just off St Irini square, in the historic centre of Athens inviting the spectators/passers by to discover them with the help of their smartphones or tablets.
The diptych is part of a series of murals in downtown Athens that aim to reinvent the way that the audience perceives and interacts with art in public spaces, through a combination of traditional and new media art techniques.
“Pallas // Nemea” is the latest addition to a series of artistic interventions that ADAF has initiated in cooperation with the City of Athens in order to promote the importance of art in public space and also to contribute towards the artistic upgrade of the city with the active participation of the public.
