If you're after some art with a bit more bite, be sure to put Flinders Quarter on your hit-list this August. For one month, the CBD pocket's laneways and buildings will be brought to life through augmented reality, all for the Flinders Quarter Augmented Art Walk.

Running from Wednesday, August 14 to Saturday, September 14, this interactive experience takes you on a self-guided art adventure — simply grab a copy of the map from participating Flinders Quarter businesses or Metro Tunnel HQ at 125-133 Swanston Street, download the supporting Eyejack app to your smartphone, hit the the 'Launch AR' button and let the tour begin.

Spanning nooks and crannies all through Flinders Quarter, the art walk showcases a slew of contemporary works from the likes of Vexta, Chelsea Gustafsson, Alex Mitchell and Adele Varcoe, which are brought to life on your phone with a combination of digital animation and sound.

You can revisit the history of fashion and theatre in Melbourne with the glamorous Pink Fit by The Huxleys, or catch Sutu's human-sized set of wings at DoubleTree by Hilton. Jacob Leary's work Stuff in Nature, Nature in Stuff celebrates disruption, while at Young & Jackson's, even the famed Chloe portrait will appear as you've never seen her before.
