Seeing the Invisible: An Augmented Reality Contemporary Art Exhibition

March 4 @ 9:00 am - May 31 @ 5:00 pm

Seeing the invisible Augemented Reality Art display Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Seeing the Invisible is the most ambitious and expansive exhibition to date of contemporary artworks created with augmented reality (AR). Developed by The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens in partnership with Outset Contemporary Art Fund as a joint venture among botanic gardens around the world, the exhibition spans six countries and features works by more than a dozen international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Refik Anadol, El Anatsui, Isaac Julien CBE RA and Mohammed Kazem.

Visitors are invited to actively locate the artworks scattered throughout the Wildflower Center, using a smartphone or tablet. The AR nature of the exhibition allows for the creation of immersive works that engage with existing features of the natural landscape. By setting these digital experiences inside botanic gardens like ours, Seeing the Invisible addresses themes of sustainability and explores the connections between art, technology, and nature.

Seeing the Invisible opens at the Wildflower Center on March 4, 2023. The exhibition will be accessible through the Seeing the Invisible app, available for iPhone and Android via the App Store and Google Play.
