      EVENT DETAILS
      'Unmoored' : A Mixed Reality Experience by Mel Chin, powered by Microsoft

      Artist Mel Chin will take over Times Square's Broadway plazas on July 11 with two new installations, 'Wake' and 'Unmoored', as part of a multi-location exhibition Mel Chin: All Over The Place, produced by the Queens Museum and public art nonprofit No Longer Empty.

      'Wake', a 24-foot-tall construction resembling a shipwreck intertwined with the skeleton of a marine mammal, adjacent to a 21-foot-tall sculpture based on the figure head of 19th century opera star Jenny Lind, will serve as a bridge to a ground-breaking digital work, 'Unmoored'.

      In collaboration with Microsoft, 'Unmoored' uses cutting-edge Mixed Reality technology to present a vision of a world where global warming has gone unchecked, with technology bringing the work to life through digital interaction. The augmented reality experience can be viewed on cell phones and tablets through a downloaded app, and will extend from 45th to 47th street from July 11-September 5. A heightened HoloLens experience of the project, created by Microsoft, will be available from July 11-13.
