The Virtual Public Art Project marries public sculpture and mobile technology to experiment with location-based art works.

The art world is finally understanding that the idea of art in a gallery holds increasingly less value in an instantly gratified and visually saturated society. The problem now, is how to marry these new technologies with work that is often tied to a specific location or time. An interesting experiment that bridges the gap between the gallery and the real world is the Virtual Public Art Project, which utilizes mobile technology and augmented reality to allow users to experience decentralized sculptures across numerous international locations, including North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
