the exhibit

In this exhibit, Allison & Rochelle of Alley Row Designs/Cry If I Want To will showcase designs that break through dimensions.  The wallpaper will feature Augmented Reality (AR) containing video and photography from Nathaniel Anderson of Sprung Gallery.

Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes a computer generated image on a user’s view of the real world, thus providing a composite view. -

Use of an AR tool is an ideal way to showcase barrier breaking, as objects that reside in the real-world transcend the limits of our general perception of visual art making the art much more dynamic. The video and photography from Nathaniel Anderson gains new life when shown through Miralupa’s AR technology. The video and images will be inspired by barrier-breaking quotes by influencers such as Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, and others.

These experiences will surround the viewer as the wallpaper will extend over the floor and ceiling to evoke themes of breaking barriers, moving up and surpassing possibilities.

Our Opening Party, sponsored by Hop City, will also feature AR among their drink complement.

Nathaniel Anderson

Whether raising the standards of portraiture for magazines such as TCHAD, capturing breathtaking global images for travel publications like En Route Magazine, raising the profile of 100Strong and other charities or exhibiting his modern dance series; Nathaniel Anderson’s work consistently transcends convention.

His photography & videography will be featured as part of the AR of the Movin' On Up Exhibit.

Hop City

We are excited to partner with Brampton based Hop City, who will be sponsoring the Opening Party.

Hop City began brewing in 2009 behind a parking lot in an industrial warehouse. Today, Hop City has a family of award-winning beers, a community of passionate fans, and Kevin and John still running the show. Some say it's the journey and not the destination. The City is, thankfully, both at once.
