Augmented Reality • Ages 4 & up

Inspired by Japanese folklore, Uramado weaves together an immersive journey around the Tanukis and Yokais, spirits from the natural world who have woken up in New York City. Through augmented reality, they come to life in surprising and whimsical ways, engaging the viewer with questions and a special gift.

Created by author and designer Julie Stephen Chheng, these fanciful characters will be hiding throughout FIAF and among the many TILT Kids Festival venues, indoors and outdoors, ready to reveal stories about themselves and ask us about ourselves. Spectators can download a free application, available on both iOS and Android, to participate in this captivating treasure hunt.

Chheng will also lead workshops on March 2 at 4pm & 3 at 12pm at FIAF, where kids will be able to create their own stories using augmented reality with Chheng’s characters or her illustrated masks.
