Refuge in Refuse: Art & Culture Project organizers lead a walking tour of the creations, realities and archives of the Albany Bulb. Learn about the history of the art & community that once flourished at the Bulb using augmented reality.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Jan 13th, 2015 3:51 PM
In an effort led by Danielle Siembieda, Refuge in Refuse partnered with an architectural surveying company, F3 & Associates, to do 3D Scanning of notable residents and structures at the Bulb before their eviction and demolition in mid-2014. The virtual models scanned in October 2013 will be indefinitely available through any augmented reality viewing device, regardless of what is built or destroyed in their place.
This tour makes use of these insights, invisible to the naked eye, and invites you into the virtual world of the Bulb— one that speaks to the legacy of the community that kept the art, culture & ecology of the Bulb thriving.
Event is free with RSVP on EventBrite. Smartphone or tablet required!
