Artists include Miami multi disciplinary artists Felice Grodin, Ivan Toth Depena, Turkish digital artist Can Büyükberber, Los Angeles artists Nancy Baker Cahill, Matthew Swenson, German street artist Mark Gmehling, Australian artist Marc-o-Matic, Central Florida installation artists Mark Gerstein, Synthestruct, Matt Roberts, and Dengke Chen, and the Inside Out project.
A ‘CITY UNSEEN’ App is available for users to enjoy the full range of art installations and immersive AR experiences at each installation site. City Unseen positions Orlando as a pioneer with a new vision for the fusion of art and technology in the 21st century and serves as a platform for discussion about social, cultural, and environmental issues affecting those around us.
