Past Press Releases

March 2010

The Virtual Public Art Project presents its inaugural exhibition, Symmetry and Growth, by U.S. artist Christopher Manzione. The exhibition of fourteen virtual sculptures that merge with their physical environments are featured in prominent public locations in eleven cities across North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. Symmetry and Growth proposes contrary systems of origins and growth to viewers who use their iPhone 3GS and Android phones to view the exhibition's virtual public sculptures.

The Virtual Public Art Project (VPAP) is an Augmented Reality (AR) platform founded in 2010 by Christopher Manzione for the public display of digital works of art. VPAP is the first mobile AR outdoor art experience ever, and maximizes public reception of AR art through compatibility with both iPhone 3GS and Android phones using the free Layar application. Following Symmetry and Growth, Manzione will curate an international group virtual public art exhibition for late 2010.
