News – Last Chance to use MCA Insight at the 18th Biennale of Sydney

Posted on Sept. 5, 2012 in Digital Media.

The 18th Biennale of Sydney: all our relations, curated by Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster, is closing on 16 September. That means there’s less than 2 weeks to get in and use MCA Insight to enhance your Biennale experience!

MCA Insight, which is free for iPhone or Android, uses the MCA’s wifi network to locate you in our galleries. It can give you information about the artworks immediately around you, such as video, studio images and audio interviews with artists and curators that give you an insight into the work.

For example you can listen to Pinaree Sanpitak talk about the sonic components of her Biennale work, or watch an extended timelapse video of the installation of Alwar Balasubramaniam’s work, The Forms of Nothing from My Hands, as you’re standing there looking at the work. MCA Insight is about giving you the tools to engage with the artworks on display, with fascinating content that enhances your experience of the works on display.

Download MCA Insight for free from iTunes or Google Play

or simply download it when you come to the MCA.

In the meantime, here’s a quick teaser of the installation footage of Balasubramaniam’s and Sanpitak’s that you can find in MCA Insight.
