The ARHT HOLOPRESENCE™ SHOWROOM @ Art Basel Hong Kong will feature gallerists from Singapore, Switzerland, and the United States life sized and life like with no noticeable latency – as though they are actually in Hong Kong.
Adeline Ooi, Director Asia, Art Basel said: “This experiment with live hologram technology at our Hong Kong show is the latest example of our efforts to innovate using digital technologies. We hope the live hologram feature will further enrich the virtual dimension of our show, which takes place in a hybrid format bridging the digital and the physical. As ever, we are committed to finding new ways to enhance our platforms and initiatives to better support our galleries, connecting them with new and existing audiences across the world, both in person and digitally.”
