Newton's apples

Do you like apples?
Do you own a smartphone with a camera and internet connection?
Find the hidden apples inside Technopolis, scan, win!

*Pay attention to the Law of Gravity!

A mixed reality event that interactively combines Site Specific Performance and Gaming. The visitors of the Athens Science Festival 2022 will have the opportunity to locate digital apples "hidden" inside Technopolis, scan them and earn points which can then be exchanged for real apples at the performer's-greengrocer's stall. An action that highlights the dilemma "digital or physical" and eloquently answers "both".

Newton's Apples is an all-day event aimed at ages 10+ (or accompanied by an adult if younger) due to the use of smartphones. Participation instructions will be available at the "greengrocer's" stall near the entrance of the Athens Science Festival, and the game is realized with the kind sponsorship of the Agricultural Cooperative of Zagora (ZAGORIN apples).

The photo of the event that poses the dilemma "physical or digital" (comic strip) has been created entirely by the DALL-E artificial intelligence program, specifically for this mixed reality event.
