Augmented Nature exhibition explores nature, art, and technology in Shoreline Parks.

This temporary outdoor art exhibition, located in several public parks in Shoreline, explores the boundary between nature, art, and technology.

As a means of celebrating the years of planning and fundraising that went into the project, City of Shoreline will host an artists’ reception at City Hall Shoreline on Thursday, December 14, 2017, from 6:30 – 8:30pm, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline, 98133, E-line bus or free parking in the City garage.

Funded in part by a grant from 4Culture, the project features the work of five artists working in collaboration on a variety of installations. Images and videos from the installations will be displayed on monitors in the lobby along with light refreshments.

Big Brother, an experimental, solar-powered video projection installed at Shoreview Park, 700 NW Innis Arden Way, 98177, by Alan Fulle and Workshop 3d with daily screenings at 4:30, 5:00, 5:30, and 6:00pm through May 30, 2018

Faux-Forest Service Signs, three wooden signs on posts made by Joel Kennedy that when viewed with a downloadable app provides additional augmented reality content (Workshop 3d), including a sweeping historical panorama called Known Unknowns by Ken Winnick; through May 30, 2018 at Shoreview Park, 700 NW Innis Arden Way, 98177.  

Known Unknowns
Known Unknowns uses a combination of historical and contemporary photographs to create a synthetic panorama that tells a hyperlocal story of the area around Shoreview Park.

Many Colors of Green: Shoreline, an ongoing project by City Meditation Crew that crowdsources iPhone imagery with meditative walking (Hamlin, Ronald Bog, South Woods Parks); additional support from Michigan Technical University.

There are actually at least three distinct displays at the park,
1) The movie in the trees,
2) "known unknowns" synth pano
3) Ice age AR, down in the woods.
