As part of our Life Meets Tech season, a very special art exhibition has arrived at Finsbury Avenue Square…
This summer, Broadgate is partnering with London design house, Marokka and The Aspinall Foundation in a unique, tech-inspired exhibition. WILD LIFE combines an imposing three metre tall gorilla sculpture (named Gus) with augmented reality to help raise awareness of endangered animals.
WILD LIFE’s gorilla sculpture and augmented reality installation was unveiled at Finsbury Avenue Square, Broadgate on Monday 31st July.
By downloading Marokka’s free app (search 'Marokka' in your app store), visitors will bring to life a 3D giraffe, elephant, rhino and lion in the square through the power of augmented reality on their smartphone screens.
Simply download the 'Marokka' app from the app store or via THIS link on your phone, then point your smartphone at special trigger points positioned around the square and watch as these wild animals move before your eyes on your screen.
The installation will remain in situ throughout the London Design Festival until 24th September, which will see Exchange Square, Broadgate transformed by artist Camille Walala who is creating the annual festival’s landmark project. The sculpture will then be gifted to leading animal conservation charity, The Aspinall Foundation, which is committed to returning rare and endangered animals back to their natural habitats.
