At the Hidden Creature Gallery, children are invited to create their own animated creatures, which are then ‘hidden’ back where they dreamt them up, using augmented reality technology. Arena artists guide participants through the creative process, helping them photograph an interesting feature of the location before transforming the photo into an animated creature, and using motion capture technology to animate the character with their own voice and movement.

Visitors to the gallery can then use the Hidden Creature Gallery app on their smart devices and search for the creatures hidden throughout the location.

Hidden Creature Gallery premiered at the 2019 Castlemaine State Art Festival and regularly appears at art fairs, schools, workshops, showcases and other events. It has travelled across Australian and even made its’ way to China in 2019.
