Public art can define the spirit of a city. It connects people with a sense of history and place. A mobile app can give people access to information that helps them better understand the world around them.
A Mobile App helps you to not only find art, but to get to know it. Who was the artist? What was their thinking behind the piece? Was there a different mural beneath the one you see today and what did it look like? The mural app is a way for city dwellers and visitors to explore the art in their towns – and discover the history of the art around them.
Great example of this is a collaborative project by Google Inc. Indonesia.
Google ID leased the city-streets and let the citizens of Indonesia create art-work. The best designs were commissioned and you can see it hapening already.
For Singapore, with a partnership like this - is a unique way of showing the citizens/kids and tourists the art+culture of Singapore and the History (and the making of Singapore)
