About

Download the wishboat app to your iPhone or iPad. It's FREE! https://appsto.re/gb/9CG42.i Create your own wishboat by entering your wish; then find your boat in the viewer and launch with a tap. Your wishboat will circle and then make its way to Queen Street in the centre of Cardiff, where the old Glamorganshire canal lies buried below the streets. Here your wishes and dreams will be released to form part of a bigger wishboat whose hull will slowly change over the course of the festival, reflecting the wishes that have been sent to it. You can use the wishboat app to view the boat in person at the Queen Street entrance of Queens Arcade, or see the latest wishes at wishboatapp.com. About wishboat Sean Vicary & Steve Knight Curated by Arcadecardiff 9 October 30 November 2014 A giant floating paper boat is moored up outside the Venetian front of the Queens Arcade. Below it's gently rocking hull the Glamorganshire Navigational Company Canal lies buried and forgotten beneath the streets. Created using 3D augmented reality, this giant boat can be navigated with the wishboat app and an iphone or ipad. Use the app to create your own personal wishboat and launch it on a journey to Queen Street. Here your wishes and dreams will be released to form part of the bigger wishboat's hull, which will slowly change over the course of the festival reflecting the wishes that have been submitted. You can visit the boat in person and view it using the wishboat app or see the latest wishes at www.wishboatapp.com Download the wishboat app here: https://appsto.re/gb/9CG42.i Playing with the Reveal/Conceal theme of the festival wishboat explores aspects of the Queens Arcade's original 1870 Venetian frontage and the memory of the vanished canal, once a vital communication link for Cardiff. arcadecardiff.co.uk
