From 9 September to 7 October, SAN Holoportation Centre will be open at the Main Galleryof the Mūkusala Art Salon.
SAN is a new planet-sized virtual space embedded in the environment for unlimited creative freedom, which becomes visible with the help of augmented reality application SAN. Owners of smartphones and tablets can view a parade of SAN objects – virtual sculptures – walking on the promenades along the embankments of the Daugava between Akmens and Salu bridges. At the Mūkusala Art Salon, which is temporarily transformed into SAN Holoportation Centre, visitors have the opportunity to perform holoportation and scan and send their 3D model to any place in the world placing it in GPS coordinates of their choice. Similarly, 360-degree photo bubbles can be created. More complex solutions are also possible and can be discussed with SAN Holoportation Centre assistants or by contacting the developers of the application through www.san.lv.
SAN application can be downloaded for free on App Store, Google Play or from www.san.lv.
On September 9, the visitors of the modern culture forum White Night will have the opportunity to visit SAN Holoportation Centre from 18:00 to 24:00 and holoportation will be free of charge for the duration of the night. The process involves 3D scanning of the person and relevant data processing, therefore the number of holoportations during the night may be limited.
Creator of SAN Gints Gabrāns (1970) is one of the brightest and most visionary Latvian artists, whose works extend into the fields of science and new technologies. Gabrāns' works dismantle the traditional perception of art as a visually aesthetic entity and show it as territory for expanding existing reality and perceptions.
