Combining art with new technologies, the Portuguese artist Leonel Moura’s design consists of sculptures with forms of viruses or small organisms designed through an algorithm, which can be seen through an application developed by NextReality. The artist has, since June 13th, seventeen sculptures of augmented reality spread all over the city of Lisbon. With the LisboaViral App, the user can resort to the smartphone to view augmented reality animation of sculptures that are part of emblematic places such as the Tower of Belém, Belém Palace, the Praça do Comércio, the Chiado, Rossio, Cais do Sodré, the Bairro Alto, Alfama,  Estação do Oriente, Boca do Inferno (Cascais), the Palace of Sintra, the Praia dos Pescadores (Ericeira), the Cabo Espichel (Sesimbra) and the Palace of Mafra. The application is available for free for iOS or Android in app stores. After installed, it raises awareness of the location of the sculptures and reveals the exact spot where the user is in that precise moment. To view the animations of augmented reality, simply go to the site and look for the sculptures that are only visible through the camera of the mobile equipment. Unprecedented in Portugal and one of the first projects of this kind in the world, this exhibition is supported by the Turismo de Lisboa (Lisbon Tourism) and will be available throughout 2019.
