Memory Anchors

 A fine art initiative designed to engage people of all ages to discover new ways of expressing feelings through interactive digital sculpture and storytelling.
 

 Katya Solomatina collaborated with Sailortown community on digital sculpting, AI-driven verbal art, photogrammetry, sound recording, and improvisational storytelling to create immersive art pieces.

As a result of collaborative development Memory Anchors presents Augmented Reality Showcase in St Josephs Church on the 13th of April and launches a new mobile Treasure Hunt Quest at Belfast's waterfront. Which will run from April until September 2024.

The mobile Treasure Hunt Quest experience activates on your phone once you find and scan the QR code on the first Memory Anchor plate. Following the river walk from the Big Fish towards Sailortown, you will scan the plates and collect virtual hidden objects and their stories. These objects were all created and brought together by Sailortown community through creative digital art workshops. The lead artist Katya Solomatina has collaborated with Sailortown and industry professionals to find new engaging ways to celebrate local heritage.

Silk Texture

Augmented Reality Showcase of objects will happen on the 13th of April with preview on the 12th.
