What is the edge of sight? Artist Vishal K. Dar explores this question with Edge of See: Twilight Engines, a suite of site-specific, virtual sculptures at three former military batteries in the Marin Headlands. The sculptures, or "engines," move through the environment when viewed through your iOS (Apple) mobile device and a special augmented reality (AR) app. Dar uses the AR technology to change our interaction with the environment around us, pushing our senses of vision, scale, motion, and time and unlocking a world of other realities.

The site-specific installation in the Marin Headlands, called Twilight Engines, is part of Edge of See, a global project exploring how we relate to borders where ocean meets land. Edge of See connects the Marin Headlands to coastal edge sites worldwide, including locations in Sweden, Sri Lanka, Japan, and the Bering Strait. A commission of Headlands Center for the Arts, this project was first developed when Dar was an Artist in Residence here in 2017.


Presented by Headlands Center for the Arts.
