Request For Qualifications: IOCO Heritage Townsite Augmented Reality Public Art
Artwork Budget: An artwork budget of CDN $55,000.00 (maximum, inclusive of PST), is designated for this project. The Public Art budget must be inclusive of all project costs, including but not limited to, artist fees, transportation and accommodation costs, studio overhead, professional fees, consultant fees, artwork creation/fabrication, artwork materials and supplies, PST and contingency. Public Art Opportunity The opportunity is to create an immersive experience by bringing awareness of a past community and way of life to the present and directly connect people with the physical space of the townsite. The opportunity’s final format will need to be a web-based augmented reality platform (webAR.) Since the IOCO site includes open spaces, numerous heritage sites and a series of interpretive signs for a self-guide tour that can serve as gateways to the AR, at least three separate locations should be activated with separate artworks. The artwork should reflect the community life of the families and not focus on the Imperial Oil Corporation. Along with the AR component of the project, the artwork must incorporate a permanent marker onsite so that visitors will be encouraged to explore the site.
