What is it about?
App Store Description
17 viruses invade Lisbon. But they do not cause the flu. They are works of Augmented Art created by the artist Leonel Moura with implementation of NextReality.
In this pioneer exhibition the city becomes the great canvas of the artistic expression of the future. The virosis is technological and its effect on people ambivalent. They cause, at the same time, fascination and fear for what it is announced. These viruses are artificial sculptures but also symbols of the transformation of the city and, in general, of the accelerated changes that have been taking place in human culture and civilization.
The 17 viruses are spread throughout Lisbon and also in Sintra, Cascais, Ericeira, Sesimbra and Mafra. They are stationary, can be observed from any point of view, recorded in photos and videos and shared on social networks.
Lisboa Viral has the support of Turismo de Lisboa.
