ROBIN MELLOR - SPACE EXPLORER
Space Explorer is a pioneering new model for a large-scale public art exhibition founded by Robin Mellor, that inspires exploration, by creating moments of wonder and discovery in everyday surroundings. Space Explorer transcends the restrictions of the stuffy, traditional gallery and utilises mobile phone technology to make the experience richer for everyone. The first instalment in the series – titled Another Space & Time will turn Hackney’s untapped outdoor spaces into a thought provoking journey through North America’s desert communities.
The Space Explorer App guided viewers around our route allowing them discover the artworks, It puts control back into the viewers hands with interactive maps and GPS triggered multimedia content, including the bespoke soundscape that accompanies each image.
The project was part Kickstarter funded with partners including Lonely Planet, VSCO and Hackney Council, it was featured as Wired Magazine App of the Month with press coverage including The Future Laboratory, Nowness, London Live and The Independent.
