CELESTIAL BEINGS. CLAUDIA MATÉ
Madrid artist Claudia Maté, one of the most internationally renowned net artists, created specifically for the festival L.E.V. Matadero 2020 two large-scale virtual sculptures inspired by El Ángel Caído (The Fallen Angel), an emblematic sculpture by Ricardo Bellver located at El Retiro park in Madrid.
Using the free app LEV AR, Maté invites us to geolocate the different adaptations of these sculptures through augmented reality technology. The large-scale versions can be found at different spots of Madrid (the cultural centre Matadero, Templo de Debod, Plaza del Palacio Real and Plaza de la Cruz Verde), and there is another adaptation of the sculpture that you can visualize from any location.
We want to fill the world with Celestial Beings, and that’s why we have created a collaborative map that will show all the photographs of the virtual sculptures that you share with us through social media or email.
