HK Urban Canvas: Mobile Application

To let audiences view the shutter art works at any time, the HK Urban Canvas project includes a mobile app with an augmented reality function that allows you to view the works on your smartphone even when shops are open and the shutters are not visible! The app also lets you share the art works on social media.

With the app you can check the location of each shutter, read about the artistic concept behind each work, learn neighbourhood stories, and follow suggested cultural tour routes – each of which is supported by a GPS system that makes it easy to locate checkpoints.

The HK Urban Canvas mobile app will be available for free download from Apple Store and Google Play from May 2017.
