“To celebrate the EU Council Presidency and its 100th birthday, Estonia is gifting a present to Brussels. Artworks combining street art and digital technologies are giving a new life to several colourful characters from a century ago, building a bridge between the past and the present.
At first glance, positioned as observers on the streets of a foreign country, they invite passersby to get to know them better via smartphones and tablets.
It’s a novel concept of public space art designed by Edward von Lõngus and the NOAR.eu art platform that, through creative technologies and humour, tells a story that all Europeans are part of. Dressed to impress and equipped with props from their own era, the time travellers are happy to make friends with passersby.”*
This project is carried out in collaboration with the City of Brussels.
