We’re seeing more use of Augmented and Virtual Reality to create more engaging and immersive experiences that bridge the conceptual to the everyday, and become increasingly powerful when in ‘real-world’ settings. Two that we’ve liked this week are...

The proposals for the world’s first AR Zoo, using the land vacated by Bristol Zoo to create an immersive experience that leaves animals in their natural habitats, while using AR and VR to experience different environments and animals, going as far back as the dinosaurs!

Secondly, ‘The Blue Violet River’ is a recent installation by Anita Fountain on Liverpool’s Mersey Ferry. It explores “an evolved reality brought about by climate change, rising sea levels and tropical climates”.

Another new opening from GENTLE MONSTER; this brand continues to push the boundaries of brand experience and retail spaces once again. Brave, crazy, and exciting.
