IMAGInuity is an interactive exhibition consisting of three parts that looks at the clever, creative, and resourceful contributions of inventors who are part of the African diaspora.
The first part was an Inventor Showcase that displayed the objects of six Afrodiasporic inventors using Augmented Reality (AR) to add an interactive component. Then Visioning Sessions were held for the public to speculate on the future of these objects, focusing on how they could function, or the issues they might address 1000 years from now.
Finally, an exhibition of the Museum of the Future 3022, featuring the revolutionized objects from the Visioning Sessions in dialogue with the inventions that inspired them, was created. See the Museum now at ArtworxTO Hub NORTH: Downsview.
