Virtual three for the weekend in Latvia: concert, music video and AR art

Everyone is slowly adapting to the “new reality” of living with social distancing and the Covid-19 novel coronavirus, but that means that virtual entertainment options are expanding. Even if you're self-isolated or self-quarantined it's still the weekend and there's plenty to see and experience while the emergency measures are still in place.

Each night 10 artists will paint, dance, recite poetry, sing, play chess and show off various other talents. Check out the Facebook event to see who'll be performing tonight!

Čipsis un Dullais - become a music video star

The musical duo have released a new song titled “Pašbūšana (Vēstules II)” (“Being with yourself (Messages II)”) and they want you to be one of the stars of the official music video. Taking inspiration from the current situation and lyrics from the “depths of the internet”, the song talks about love during quarantine asking, as the chorus goes: “But are you reading my messages?”. Simply film yourself getting comfy at home, or if you're feeling brave, singing the chorus, and send the video to the group's Facebook page by April 30!

Gints Gabrāns - augmented reality sculptures

Download the SAN mobile application to see Gabrāns' new project titled “New Territories. Spring, 2020, LV” - fantastic, virtual sculptures that you can see from your apartment, house, a field or forest.
