iPhone Forecast App From Public Art Review

The Problem:

Finding an application that can work for Artists as much as Curators while appealing to the mass public.

What the Application asks for from the client, Public Art Review

  • facilitate public art
  • designed for applicants, for people that will use forecast to facilitate their art
  • see documentation that the artist has done, video from vimeo (interviews, slideshows, contracts for download, see process, press clippings, facsimile’s, links to articles online, etc) , photos, stored from a cloud.
  • walking tour
  • pings to indicate where someone is
  • dvd commentary of what the artist did from their voice
