A Window to Reality was a Graff.io Arts project that turned town centre shop windows into a gallery through the use of augmented reality (AR).
Engaging directly with the decline of town centre shopping ,the project repurposes the windows of disused shops. The windows are turned into portals for viewing art. Through this project the streets of the city become an alternative, curated venue for broader, unexpected exposure to the arts.
The project demonstrates how new technologies, collaboration and fresh thinking can unlock public spaces as hybrid commercial and creative locations for the betterment of all.
