ABOUT

IMAGInuity is an interactive exhibition that examines past objects created by Black Canadian & Afrodiasporic inventors and places them in dialogue with what they could possibly be 1000 years in the future.

It looks at the clever, creative, and resourceful contributions of inventors who are part of the African diaspora by delving into the archives of the past. The result is 6 nifty objects that have aided in travel, helped us to cook, and even added versatility in the way that we communicate with each other.

IMAGInuity asks the public to flex their imaginative and inventive muscles to discover what these inventions will be like 1000 years in the future. 

With the use of augmented reality (AR) and the Artivive app, IMAGInuity adds a layer of excitement to the display of the inventions!
