Followers of Axis will know that as well as promoting artists and provoking debate about contemporary art, we also build web platforms and create new digital products. Recently, this has led to some exciting new developments, among them a website and iPhone app for Art in Yorkshire – supported by Tate.
The iPhone app for Art in Yorkshire has had unanimous 5 star ratings and featured in the ‘recommended’ section of the iTunes store. We reckon it can’t get better than that!
The great thing about this project is that it has produced a number of spin-offs. Working with digital agency fuse8, we’ve facilitated the ‘re-skinning’ of the website and app for other organisations – a good example of sharing resources and making initial Arts Council England investment go a long way.
We’re really pleased with the results and look forward to creating further ‘clones’ of the Art in Yorkshire website and iPhone app. Already in the pipeline are a website and iPhone app for contemporary art venues in the North East, a project led by the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Turning Point North East.
Our collaborators so far have been in Yorkshire and the North, but we’re keen to work further afield and extend the benefit of these platforms to audiences elsewhere.
