Caloundra’s newest mural is literally jumping off the wall and into the record books as the Sunshine Coast’s first public artwork to use augmented reality. 

Located at 16 Bulcock Street, on the corner of Knox Avenue the Looking Glass Fish in the Deep Hue Sea was commissioned by council as an initiative of the Sunshine Coast Arts Plan 2018 – 2038.  The work is a collaboration between Melbourne-based artist George Rose and digital artist Stu Campbell (Sutu), founder of the EyeJack app. The mural is inspired by local Sunshine Coast fauna and flora – Agassiz perchlet, Dog Roses and Ravine Orchids.
