Just what is ArtxTechforGood about, you ask? It is the intersection where art and technology intersect to create wonder. It offers more than 20 immersive multi-sensory experiences by a new generation of Singapore artists, who are woke enough to realise that our planet is in danger, and are starting the conversation about it. This is not just a normal exhibition; they intimately understand that the current generation loves to be engaged, so they’ve used VR and AR technology to show you how you can create a more sustainable future for yourself and for others.
