Aberdour ARt Trail was created by Where Giants Roam.

The village’s CGI and VR studio, Where Giants Roam, made an exciting and forward-thinking contribution to this year’s art festival, which kicked off on Friday, July 29.

In collaboration with the Aberdour Arts Committee, the Where Giants Roam team designed and developed the interactive augmented reality Aberdour ARt Trail.

Event goers can search the village for selected art installations, by scanning a QR code at various locations with their smartphone.

Excitement mounts as Aberdour Festival is set to return

Alison Chapman, member of the Art Festival team, said: “Since 2016 we have organized the Aberdour Festival opening weekend art exhibition in conjunction with the Dalgety Bay Art Club which takes care of the exhibitions in the parish hall.

“It’s great to be back after three years and we’re especially excited to have Where Giants Roam on board with an augmented reality AR-t course.”

Leaflets with location clues can be picked up at art exhibition venues during the weekend, where you can also view the originals of local artwork and shops during the week.

With paintings, sculptures and jewellery, there is plenty to see at this year’s festival which takes place as part of the wider Aberdour Festival.

Blair Porter, Creative Director of Where Giants Roam, added: “It’s great to be able to get involved in such a popular local event – and the use of technology to add yet another element of family fun to the week. is a great opportunity to show how flexibly AR can be used.”
