We offer an experiential version of what is waiting when they get “off-the beaten path”
We’re going to send some of the Rock to Ontario through a slow-moving viral stunt where a GPS based Augmented Reality Iceberg is “launched” from Newfoundland heading to Toronto Harbour. Regular social media updates with “sightings” all along the St.Lawrence River will whet the appetite.
When it reaches its final destination it will signify the opening of “Iceberg Alleyway” a group of murals depicting examples of East Coast art work brought to life during the day with the same Augmented Reality app used for selfies of the iceberg while Projected Light shows dazzle viewers at night.
