Restart Reality: Digital Street Art – Brussels

Restart Reality: Digital Street Art – Brussels

Location: Anspachlaan 18, 1000 Brussel, Belgium

To celebrate its 100-year birthday and upcoming EU Presidency, Estonia is making a present to a number of capital cities in Europe. Artworks combining street art and digital technologies will give a new life to a range of colourful characters from a hundred years ago, building a bridge between the past and the present.

At first sight positioned as observers on the streets of a foreign country, they will invite passers-by to get to know them better via smartphones and tablets. Augmented reality technology will wake the characters to life.

Ats#Pets, an ˈelectricˈ bagpipe duo from Tarvastu, will be jamming on the streets of Paris. Lembit, the King of the Hill, who speaks the ancient language of stones and knows all the secrets stored in rocks, observes life in Copenhagen. ‘Digital nomads’ Tiit and Miina, who spent some time stuck in a mail server after a malfunction of a self-built teleportation device, reappear in London.

It´s a novel concept of public space art that through creative technologies and humour tells a story that all Europeans are all part of. Dressed to impress and equipped with props from their own time, our time-travellers are happy to make friends with passers-by and perhaps also teach the people around them something new and quirky.

In 2018, Estonia celebrates its 100th birthday

Estonia wishes to share its birthday with you in Estonia and abroad. The programme includes best parts of Estonian culture, IT, science and enterprises.

Celebrations will kick off in April 2017 to mark a century since Estonia’s administrative borders took their current form, will continue throughout 2018 and 2019, and come to a grand close on the 2nd February 2020 when the 100th anniversary of the Tartu Peace Treaty will be honoured.

This is a celebration we can all take part in and it is up to us to make it memorable.

Estonia will be also holding the presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2017. Approximately 20 high-level meetings, visits, conferences and 200+ other presidency-related events will take place in Estonia during this period.
