Snapchat and Australian artist Mond Qu are bringing Aussies an immersive new ‘ARt’ experience at this year’s Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi exhibition. This will be the first-ever augmented reality (AR) artist collaboration for the world’s largest annual free-to-the-public outdoor sculpture exhibition, using hyper-realistic ray tracing technology to create a ‘secret’ sculpture which visitors can unlock at Tamarama Beach, in an unmissable highlight of the 2023 exhibition.
Those who can’t make it to Sydney can also experience the magic of Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi and ‘Chasing the Sun’, through a global Snapchat AR lens also developed in collaboration with Mond Qu. Using ground and surface tracking, this lens lets Snapchatters anywhere in the world place the sculpture into their own environment, scaling the work to fit on a table, the floor or in any location in their surroundings, so they can chase the sun wherever they are.
The free Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi exhibition takes place along the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk and will be open from 21 October until 6 November. To unlock the on-site AR experience created in collaboration with Mond Qu, visit ‘Chasing the Sun’ on the sand at Tamarama beach and use your phone camera to scan the QR code, or search in Lens Explorer on Snapchat.
