To mark its Presidency of the Council of the European Union and its 100th birthday, Estonia is giving Brussels a present. Works combining urban art and digital technologies bring colourful characters from the last century to life, linking past and present.
At first glance, they appear to be observers on the streets of a foreign country, inviting passers-by to take a look at them and get to know them better through their smartphones and tablets.
This is a new artistic concept for public spaces, designed by Edward von Lõngus and the platform, both of which use creative technology and humour to tell a story that all Europeans can relate to. The time travellers, dressed in outfits adorned with period accessories, are there to meet with passers-by.

This project is being carried out in collaboration with the City of Brussels.
