Working closely with members of Hove Civic Society, the group responsible for Hove’s latest art installation; White Rabbit has been providing support for Hove Plinth, in the way of digital technology.
One aspect of the project has been to integrate NFC Tap ‘n’ Go functionality, into the display board on site. Allowing visitors to simply tap their phone against the display and interact with the artwork. There will be a blog post about that in the near future.
Hove Plinth Virtual Tour
If you’re stuck indoors on a rainy day, don’t want to brave the wind on Hove seafront; or for those who simply aren’t fortunate enough to live nearby. White Rabbit has also created a virtual tour of Hove Plinth! Available to see on Google StreetView and also directly here. Experience the Plinth and the 2018/2019 artwork ‘Constellation’ by Jonathan Wright in all its glory; right from your armchair.
Use a VR headset with your phone and go full screen, to create a truly immersive (virtual) outdoor art experience.
