This is our second LuminoCity festival held in Devonport, Tasmania. As we grow the event, our aim is to create something unique to our community that celebrates creativity and innovation while providing a unique and enchanting experience for all ages.

Experience the cutting-edge New Worlds Multiverse Cubes at LuminoCity 2024: Introducing Many Worlds! This groundbreaking exhibition of multiverse cubes, presented as an Augmented Reality (AR) art walk, redefines the art canvas by showcasing masterpieces within AR multiverse cubes. Each side of these cubes serves as a portal to another world, inviting you into a mesmerizing journey.

Ten visionary digital artists have crafted a visual narrative that compels you to explore, rotate, and compare these cubes, revealing new perspectives and examining the intricate relationships between adjacent worlds. The AR presentation creates a stunning juxtaposition of virtual portals within our physical reality, with each cube side offering a window into a surreal alternate universe.

Find all ten artworks and prepare to be captivated by the striking contrast and immersive experience as you witness a rift in the fabric of our reality at the Many Worlds exhibition.

QR codes to access the works can be found in Haines Park, the paranaple centre and Market Square.
