Artist Statement:


    Unknown Meetings is a site-specific augmented reality project that takes as its premise the awkward and surreal encounters of daily occurrences during commutes. Designed by artist Matt Roberts and poet Terri Witek for Vancouver’s local transportation system, SkyTrain riders can see a floating, out of place object on their smartphones, and hear a poetic fragment. These take place whenever the train approaches a station, creating unexpected juxtapositions that shift the anxiety of arrival onto disruptive, ephemeral “connections”.
