An augmented reality (AR) application enables citizens and visitors of 18 Greek cities to relive the projection-mapping experience in the same urban setting by using their mobile phones or tablets locally. The app also features information about each Municipality’s webpage and guidance around the city’s and the Committee’s cultural events. Finally, each app user is presented with the option to purchase coins of rare collectable value from the Committee’s Numismatic Programme, contributing this way to alleviate the consequences of the recent fires in Greece.

More than 300 works of art from Museums, Municipalities, and private collections in Greece and abroad, were used for its development. The narrative was creatively composed using a unique animation methodology titled Visual Layering, which brings life into works of art by adding depth, movement, and sound. The projections were further enhanced with an original music score, as well as with an ambient light installation. The main projection content of “Desire for Freedom” was further enhanced with a concise artistic contribution to the local history of each participating city relevant to its independence.
