NetPark will enable park visitors to experience an added layer of artists’ digital projects that respond to the park setting. The project will create a wifi-enabled outdoor space for digital art in Chalkwell Park, Southend on Sea and artists will be commissioned to produce new site-specific works. The project will also create a toolkit for locative media in public spaces and will be devised as a series of layers that augment the experience of the park using mobile technology. Artists, researchers and mobile developers will work together to devise a bespoke software and hardware system that exists as a model of publicly engaged practice using mobile technology.
