Public art app?

Sideshowmatt123 3 December 2012 8

Idea: an app allowing users to locate, review and rate public art.

Perfect project for budding programmers aged 5 and over.

Potentially scalable worldwide, leading to undreamt-of riches.

The little Ipod device you get when you go through MONA in Tasmania give you the ability to rate the art and read the artistic wankery or more human interpretations.

Love it, that’s an app worth having

a propos, just noticed a new piece that looks like worms tapering up into a woven grid, situated in woden in the ‘boulevarde’ [?] between the gov’t office behind the square at the soul bar / which bank end… no pics yet, but someone with a camera might get one? what does it all mean, anyway?

I have GPS readings for most pieces in Civic and Acton and many in the ANU. Holla if you want them

That’s a brilliant idea.

And Martyo, the info is published when a DA is lodged, but that disappears into ACTPLA’s chasm once that’s finished.

Point your camera at it and you get a VR explanation of the story behind it. People are always asking, so this would really help develop better appreciation for the art. One for next year’s GovHack I reckon. I’ll tweet a message to Pia Waugh.

… I’d hope the relevant agencies would be delighted by the public engagement!

You’d have to ask. TAMS are perhaps more likely than ArtsACT to have maps and geodata. Maybe a list of locations is the best they’ll have.
