Site specific artwork has always generated interest because of its ability to cause people to reconsider their preconceived notions about their surroundings. Mobile devices, augmented reality and proximal notifications are the new tools available to artists, enabling them to create playful experiences within virtual space that audiences can only view when they visit specific places.
MoMA curator, Paola Antonelli does it again:
‘ 21st-century culture is centered on interaction:  “I communicate, therefore I am” is the defining affirmation of  contemporary existence, and objects and systems that were once charged  only with formal elegance and functional soundness are now also expected  to have personalities… Talk to Me explores this new terrain, featuring a variety of designs that enhance  communicative possibilities and embody a new balance between technology  and people.’

McLuhan’s big idea was to spot that the word “medium” has distinctly different meanings. The conventional one is that a medium is a channel for communicating information – which is why much discussion about media up to his time focused on the content that was being conveyed by print, radio and television. But there is another, equally significant, interpretation. To a biologist, a medium is an environment containing the nutrients in which tissue cultures – organisms – grow. Change the medium and you change the organisms. Our communications media likewise constitute the environment which sustains, nurtures – or constrains – our culture. And if the medium changes, then so does the culture. The medium is far more than the message, in other words. In fact, it’s all we’ve got.
