A pair of Dutch artists are spending the next five months building a location-based audio documentary of Philadelphia that’s powered by Google Earth.
The artists, Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum a/k/a PolakVanBekkum, won a $168,000 grant from the University City Science Center. The pair will lead the Art Along the Avenue of Technology arts residency, according to a release. They arrived from the Netherlands last month and will be working with volunteers, who will wear microphones and GPS devices while they wander around the city, to make the documentary.
