New publication - Shannon Novak: "Manhattan Phrase: 40.74279,-74.008981 to 40.728411,-73.975679"

Shannon Novak -

Chartwell is proud to have supported a new artist publication, "Manhattan Phrase: 40.74279,-74.008981 to 40.728411,-73.975679", by Shannon Novak.

During October 2013 in New York, Novak exhibited “Manhattan Phrase: 40.74279,-74.008981 to 40.728411,-73.975679”, a site-specific installation using augmented reality and mobile devices. The audience could walk 14th Street in Manhattan and hold a mobile device up to specific sites to reveal the musical history of that site as interpreted through abstract animation. Novak also exhibited “Pastorale” in Central Park; a virtual sculpture the audience could walk through using mobile devices. Both projects are captured in this text and explored in writings by Radhika Subramaniam, Stephen Cleland, Mary Reid, Max Gimblett, Matt Jones, Ian Gwilt and Tracey Benson. This text can be purchased from the Auckland Art Gallery shop.
