We are commissioning a new interactive mobile artwork to feature in Digital Zoo, an art exhibition that will tour to 6 shopping centres across the UK in 2014.
In this exhibition shoppers will be invited to experience the wonders, delights and fascinations of contemporary life in the “world wild web” – through art installations, projections and workshops.
The commission will be a new or existing work that engages people through their mobile phones – taking the everyday activities and environments of the different shopping centres as their context and playground.
The commissioned work will need to have a distinctive character in each different location.
We are interested in critical and playful works that change shoppers normal experience by connecting them with each other in unusual ways in their natural habitat – momentarily or for ever.
The work may take the form of an app, a game, an interactive sms, a treasure hunt, citizen documentary or choreography, psychogeography or ethology. It should work well across all mobile devices to enable the widest possible participation and would ideally include some interface that makes visible the live interaction.
