The GPS enabled app offers a free, interactive way for visitors to easily navigate around the Cottesloe exhibition and discover details about the 70 artworks, and the talented artists who created them.
The app is free to download and includes an interactive map, catalogue details of all exhibiting artists, stunning photographs, news and award announcements. The app also gives users the option to “like” an unlimited number of artists’ sculptures, creating a personal shortlist of favourite sculptures ready to be voted for in the popular EY People’s Choice and Kids’ Choice Prizes.
Audio tours of some of the sculptures in the exhibition are also available via a small donation. Recorded by Dr Michael Hill, Head of Art History and Theory, National Art School, each piece of audio lasts for around one minute and offers unique insights into the artists and their sculptures. Look out for the artworks with a headphone icon on the site number.
A donation of $2.99 (or above) will unlock the 26 audio recordings currently available.
As the WA borders have now reopened, it is hoped that as many people as possible can visit and enjoy Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe over the next three weeks.
For those who are unable to visit the beautiful Cottesloe beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean, to view the sculptures in person, the new mobile app will enable you to view the artworks from anywhere in Australia.
So charge your phone, download the App, pack your headphones and head to Cottesloe beach to experience Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2022.
Voluntary tax-deductible donations – starting at $5 – can also be made directly through the app.
The app will be updated for each exhibition, offering visitors a virtual and audio tour of Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2022 later this year and on into the future.
The development of the Sculpture by the Sea App is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW. Audio recordings were kindly made with the assistance of Smith & Western Sound.
