One of the highlights of the week is Cult of Crypto’s AR Exhibition curated by Ogar. This exhibition features 20 artists presenting original 3D artworks through portable NFC-enabled cones. These cones allow art to be experienced anywhere within the exhibition hall, around the venue, and even on the beach. This dynamic approach, powered by MONA’s AR viewer, blurs the lines between the virtual and the real, offering an immersive way to engage with art. Once you’ve spotted a cone, tap it with your smartphone to load the AR landing page. Tap where you want to place the art on your screen and double tap to change locations!

“Cult of Cryptoart is an art collective based on independence and mutualization, based on our founder AlottaMoney’s idea of sharing and collaboration. We are really happy to have put this booth together to bring people around what is important for us which is art. We gathered cardboard in the street in order to create the ephemeral booth where everybody during the event will keep customize. Our goal is to display augmented reality art through red physical cones equipped with tags that will redirect on MONA augmented reality viewer.” - Ogar & team
