Renowned NZ artist Billy Apple has three public artworks in Mt Eden. Auckland Council wanted to find a unique way to highlight these works with an art walk and it was determined, by working closely with the council, that Billy wanted the navigation of this walk to be an artwork in itself.
We collaborated with Summer of Dev to create a webapp that essentially function as a series of compasses - the design of which was presented by ourselves and, to our delight, approved by Billy himself.
By using geolocation features available in any smartphone, hidden features are revealed upon nearing each piece of art. These 'easter eggs' are conceptually linked with each artwork and can additionally also be shared to social media.
