Electric Medway returns this summer to present Augmented River; 10 days of immersive events that will alter your perceptions of reality.
Opening on Friday 19 August, the popular digital festival will include the mesmerising EXPONENTIAL by Lucid Creates at the Pentagon Shopping Centre, and Alice in VR Wonderland by Jasmin Vardimon Company at Chatham Library. DUSKWAVES will play an electronic music set at Victoria Gardens, while Hello Lamp Post will launch an artificial intelligence trail on heritage objects at St Mary’s Island and Rochester.
Developed with Hi3 Network, Voyage of Ancient Beasts will feature an augmented reality boat safari on the Edith May barge, whilst immersive company BRiGHTBLACK will bring their experimental streamed show The Black Rabbit to a pop up shop. Other activities will involve projections at Intra High Street and a performance at the submarine in Strood, a virtual programme online and much more. Get ready to immerse yourself in the surreal and fantastical world of metaverse Medway.
Kevin Grist, Artistic Director of SparkedEcho said: “Now in it’s third year, we’re excited to be bringing a packed programme of workshops, performances and artworks that use digital technology in clever ways. There’s something for everyone, from an electronic picnic in the park with chillwave music, to an augmented reality boat ride on the river. It really is going to be a great summer for families to experience something new in Medway.”
