2012 Expose, Intervene, Occupy: Re-Interpreting Public Space
Project Statement: Playful and user-friendly Post-it-Notes offered us an intervention medium to highlight a few of the poignant ironies in the story of the global financial crisis.
The vultures... well....
An Augmented Reality application for internet enabled mobile devices that will interrogate the meaning of public space using models, images, text and movies overlaid on locations in Chicago’s loop.
Our collectives, unreal-estates and V1b3 and awareprojx propose a project to be executed jointly with other invited artists that will “tag” various downtown locations in the Chicago loop with artist-created messages to be accessed through mobile devices and AR (augmented reality) point of interest markers and other location-based tagging systems .
The work will make challenging artwork accessible to a broad range of people on the street who may not encounter art in their everyday lives other than large, public sculpture. The work we propose reframes public art as intervention and reinterpretation; it will be a provocation to consider issues relevant to culture and the environment.
