Have to admit my complete ignorance of all things Apple, sounds good though so maybe I’ll have a go at hiring one for a while.
LIVERPOOL BIENNIAL – INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART – TO LAUNCH IPHONE APPLICATION DEVELOPED BY APPOSING
During the 10 week festival visitors who don’t own an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will also be able to hire an iPod Touch device preloaded with the application. The app will be available to download from the Apple App Store for free six weeks before the start of the festival.
Liverpool Biennial Head of Marketing Antony Pickthall, said “Liverpool Biennial is constantly looking to break new grounds and the introduction of a dedicated iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad application will really enhance visitor experience in 2010. For those not from Liverpool, this is a fun and interactive way to provide visitors with up-to-the-minute information straight into the palm of their hand even before they arrive in the City.”
Mr Pickthall stated that was Apposing’s innovative forward thinking approach that won them the contract as it mirrored that of the Liverpool Biennial organisation and added it was great to see such home-grown talent in the mobile software industry.
David Brown, Creative Director of Apposing commented, “Our Liverpool Biennial iPhone Application will use GPS to show users exactly where they are on an interactive map helping them navigate around the multitude of venues. Additionally, through close collaboration with the Biennial team, we’re including venue information, artist profiles,
images and videos ensuring visitor experiences are truly interactive and memorable in 2010”.
The 2010 international exhibition, the sixth biennial in the city, will celebrate a decade of commissioning new art and be based across multiple venues, including: A Foundation, Tate Liverpool, the Bluecoat, FACT and Open Eye Gallery, with half the exhibition sited in public spaces across Liverpool.
