Dynamic Variation:

Seeing the Invisible

Sep 22, 2021 - Aug 1, 2022


Experience an innovative exhibition of contemporary artworks existing only in augmented reality (AR).

Co-curated by Hadas Maor and Tal Michael Haring, Seeing the Invisible presents virtual works that engage with existing features of the natural landscape. Beyond the boundaries of what is possible with physical artworks, many of the works created for the exhibition address themes of nature, environment, sustainability and the intersection of the physical world with the digital one.

The augmented reality exhibition features new works by international artists including Ai Weiwei, El Anatsui, John Gerrard, Ori Gersht, Mohammed Kazem and Sigalit Landau—including several artists’ first works in AR. The exhibition is experienced through the unique Seeing the Invisible app, available for iPhone and Android in the App Store and Google Play.

Seeing the Invisible is organized by the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens and Outset Contemporary Art Fund and opens simultaneously at 12 gardens across six countries. The project has been made possible in partnership with The Jerusalem Foundation.

Download the free app via the App Store or Google Play. For optimal speeds, download the 2GB app at home prior to your visit. The app may be downloaded onsite at the Gardens via mobile data, but please be patient as it may take several minutes.
