Curatory Pérola Bonfanti
Creation Pérola Bonfanti, Marília Vasconcellos, Nicolina Tyler and Zel Nonnenberg.

4 ACES is an urban art game developed for Vienna and implemented by the international group of artists Pérola Bonfanti, Nicolina Tyler, Zel Nonnenberg and Marília Vasconcellos. The curatory and direction of Pérola Bonfanti, the project was created for the Hofburg, Vienna with the partnership of the Burghauptmannschaft, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Spanish Riding School, the Imperial Treasury, Ars Electronica Solutions, the Museum Albertina and the Fokus Media House; overall coordination lies with CC Real.
The project looks at the significance of Time and Urban Space, viewed from different perspectives. The aim is to inspire people and to make them sensitive to the great questions of mankind in a playful way. The three perspectives of Time are: Time the Devourer, Time as Eternity and Time as the Exact Moment. 
The game combines reality and virtuality. This “augmented reality“ allows people to have a unique art experience in the public space by opening hidden doors, thus revealing secrets and bringing new insights. 
The new digital reality is changing the way we perceive time, space and reality, our objective is to experience with the new possiblities.
