ATOM-r (Anatomical Theatres of Mixed Reality) presents Rhinestone Cowboy – a movement and augmented reality performance during the Autumn Equinox with five live cows on The 606. This performance celebrates the Equinox and Chicago’s farming roots.
At 5:45 PM starting at the Ridgeway end of the trail, witness a bedazzling dressage of the cows by ATOM-r. At 6 PM the cow procession begins while ATOM-r performs a ritual, ceremonial dance for the cows. The public, using smartphones, are invited to scan the cows’ rhinestone garments to reveal archival imagery of dairy cows and milking parlors from Chicago’s history. The procession continues up the trail to mark the Observatory’s alignment with the sunset at 6:47 PM.
