Hackney is well known for its up-and-coming art scene and now it’s taking itself to the streets for all to see. The Outdoor art trail from Hackney to Regents Canal will be showcasing photography, tech, travel and interactive art. The trail will enable us to rekindle our sense of adventure, morphing the city around us into an entirely immersive experience. Space Explorer by Photographer Robin Mellor uses billboard-size photography of desert dwellers, dotted around the streets. His Kickstarter-funded, project is an app-enhanced experience where users can trigger sounds and stories behind the images, using GPS. It’s merging the digital, visual and storytelling for a completely immersive experience.
