Digital innovation meets and augments Kiwi artistic passion in the Art In Structure charity auction for Ronald McDonald House.
The culmination of over a year’s work, the winning steel sculptures will be on display at James & Cheryl Wright’s Art Industry in Clevedon from 23rd March until 9th April. The auction will run at the same time on TradeMe, with all proceeds being donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The two winning sculptures were part of the Art In Structure competition last May, where twelve finalists had their designs transformed by Fletcher’s Digital Innovation Lab into augmented reality models. These interactive displays were hosted at Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter, and judging the winners was put to the public.
They did not disappoint, and a massive turnout meant the competition was heated. The winning designs, Becca and Ben Bolscher’s “Floral Fusion” and Rose Petterson’s “Divine Star”, have finally been crafted into remarkable steel sculptures which are each a unique encounter in themselves.
On Sunday 26th March, Sunday 2nd and 9th April, visitors at Art Industry Clevedon will also be able to view the original Augmented Reality models of the winning and runner-up entries.
