GPS-based, user-activated audio AR work
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago
(Original commissioning. 4 sites.
Participants' movements activate the app-based GPS-triggered audio to play, causing an invisible museum to come to life before them. This work takes the form of a fictitious audio museum guide for unseen architecture dedicated to invisible forces. Occurring in parks throughout Chicago, and subsequently Quebec City, participants discover two realms of the invisible: the architecture of an imaginary museum and the contents of the museum’s unseen “galleries,” each dedicated to a scientific and perceptual component of invisibility.
