Local Area Artwork

Until the middle of June 2013 you could see and experience the Local Area Artwork project at the Kunsthal Aarhus, implemented at the annual exhibition by Guirlanden. The project offered the audience a new way to participate in the exhibition, based on WiFi technology.

CAVI, in close collaboration with PIT, the Participatory IT research center at Aarhus University, developed a solution for the audience-involving project, Local Area Artwork. The project gave the audience easy access to a possible new role as commentator, or even curator, using their own mobile devices. This input  was also uploaded to a blog created for this purpose, so that the artists, the audience, and the curators could follow the trail of opinions and thoughts regarding a specific work of art.
