Geofenced

Augmented reality is often shared through a geofence, a virtual geographic boundary comprised of GPS co-ordinates. This invisible fence enables software to trigger a response when a device enters or leaves a real-world area. In this exhibition, the geofence becomes a metaphorical framework through which to consider how AR technologies alter the environment, either by making spaces more accessible or by creating new barriers.

At InterAccess, sculptural works trigger interactive and immersive AR experiences. Beyond the gallery’s walls, AR artworks adorn billboards, fences, and railway crossings. Enlivening Toronto’s Davenport neighbourhood with site-specific, virtually activated interventions, the artworks in Geofenced connect viewers to the forgotten histories, contemporary politics, and faraway futures of place.
