“Move my Shadow”
Where? Wherever you are…
Join our exhibition – place one of the artworks in your window, let others enjoy them while passing your street! The artworks come to live while you scan them with EyeJack app (gratis).

Info about the project:
“Move my Shadow” is a project of 4 artists, aiming to organize an exhibition space with the help of citizens. It’s an open air, non-location based exposition, built by participation of the public. The artworks are hung in the windows and other exposed places thanks to the consent and the initiative of their owners. This Photographic & Poster Design Exposition is also linked with new technology of Augmented Reality: every artwork is coupled with an animated storytelling, which visitors can discover by scanning the artwork with their own mobile device, using the EyeJack application. This application is free for everyone and works on all platforms (iOS, Android, etc). Furthermore, everyone joining our exhibition, as a host or visitor, expands automatically our exhibition map, which begins from Leuven and expands to other countries in Europe and beyond. We aim to show that co-creation and artistic participation makes us “bulletproof” and restores the connection between the creators and the public, which in the last year suffered so much from the absence of the performing and exhibiting space. Our project aims also in showing the importance of public and the participation of citizens in maintaining the artistic scene of New Normal.
