Today, every public space is simultaneously an augmented space. Virtual layering of data expands the physical space and brings forth new realms of possibilities. We wish to make this in-between space accessible for artistic interventions by anchoring virtual artworks to specific locations, channelling the ephemeral presence of an interruption or a glitch.

Fostering site-specificity and thinking with curatorial dispositions, WAVA aspires to open up the augmented layer to the public and artists alike, serving as a nomadic framework for virtual and physical communal gatherings across different cities and places.

WAVA–Withstanding Audio Visual Augmentations–an emerging platform for site-specific augmented reality turning the world into an ever-changing exhibition space, developed by Ben Livne-Weitzman, David Bachmann, Florian Adolph, and Grit Medea. With WAVA, artists, curators, institutions, and the broad public can easily place, share, and experience virtual artworks in specific sites and contexts, envisioning a new hybrid space that bridges the physical and virtual.
