Magritte Your World
An iPhone app, released to coincide with a major exhibition of René Magritte's work at Tate Liverpool. The ‘Magritte Your World’ camera based app invites people to take pictures of their favourite views or landmarks and 'Magritte' them, by overlaying an animation inspired by 'Golconda', one of the artist’s most famous paintings. Suited, booted and bowler-hatted businessmen rain from the sky in an interactive and contemporary interpretation of Magritte’s own surreal painting. Short videos of the animation can be recorded and shared with friends on Flickr and Facebook.
The Tate App is available for free from the App Store and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.2 or later.
