"Splinter-Dimensional" AR Experience Coming to Toronto's Christie Pits
The Luminato-commissioned event is an interactive scavenger hunt installation
Published Jul 14, 2021An augmented reality experience from Luminato Festival and immersive event company Planet Fabulon has landed at Toronto's Christie Pits Park. "Splinter-Dimensional," an interactive installation, will take attendees on a 30-minute scavenger hunt through the west-end park.
The experience will send attendees on a quest to save "the Captain" through interactions with sci-fi characters and objects spread throughout Christie. Attendees who complete the event will be rewarded with a dance party hosted by Toronto's DJ Me Time. "Splinter-Dimensional" launched earlier today and will run until July 18 at 8 p.m. ET.
"We want to get Torontonians out of their homes and in sync with their inner child," Planet Fabulon event organizer Anna Douglas (who also plays the Captain) said in a statement.
"When we were invited to participate in Luminato's Creative Current programming this year, we knew we would still need to lean into technology to dream up a safe event. But we want to get folks back outside in the real world! How? By using augmented reality to create a physical adventure designed with safety, accessibility, and most importantly, our particular brand of sci-fi whimsy in mind."
