Julie Stephen Chheng: Uramado AR. Tanukis Awake

Permanent exhibition
Espigón de Fomento

Uramado AR is an augmented reality treasure hunt for stunning creatures hiding in the city: the Tanukis. Created by Julie Stephen Chheng, this app-based experience invites us to interact with the location and find these forest spirits in order to discover who we truly are.

The Tanukis are more or less hidden in different places of Espigón de Fomento. When we find them, they will come to life and interact with us, asking questions and reacting to our answers. They will guide us through this adventure where we will question our own differences and our vision of the world in a playful and poetic way.

Julie Stephen Chheng uses the smartphone as a wonderful filter of the real world, connecting closely the space in which the actual objects are displayed and the virtual reality they propose. Just download the application to become suddenly immersed in this dream world that breathes a message of profound love and admiration for Nature.
