dyInterpretations iPhone App - Available 2.11.11 (9am-9pm PST) on iTunes

dYInterpretations: A Journey through the de Young with Filmmaker-in-Residence Lise Swenson

The iPhone app dYinterpretations is a journey through our museum space, its collection, and its history as seen through the perspectives of various artists who have been invited to enter and interpret the site. Lise Swenson, the de Young’s filmmaker-in-residence, uses her camera and her understanding of and relationship to the museum to guide the visitor on an inquiry that is lyrical, content-rich, and multilayered.

The App will be available free in the iTunes App Store on February 11 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (PST). After this preview, the App will be available for $2.99 on March 1st.

*We really encourage everyone to download the app before coming to the museum. Time for download varies depending on WiFi network.*

This is by far the largest and longest project that I have been lucky enough to be a part of it's entirety. I am extremely proud of Lise Swenson for her perseverance, Spotlight Mobile,Inc. for their brilliant software development, and the leaders of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Education/Public Programs department that had the vision to put artist's process at the forefront of our museums.

I would love any kind of feedback in your experience of the app. It could either be enjoyed at the museum and for those across the world, this will give you a beautiful experience of the museum that you may never be able to visit in person.
