'Your exhibition guide' is an invitation to actively explore art with all of the senses, to see yourself seeing and feel yourself feeling. Move through the exhibition as if you were an asteroid. View things from multiple perspectives. Think about how it feels to encounter art with others. Look at art and imagine it isn’t art. Drift doubtfully through an exhibition. Explore the vital friendship between art and reality.
Olafur Eliasson, known for works such as 'The weather project' (2003) at Tate Modern, London, or 'The New York City Waterfalls' (2008), often engages with natural phenomena like water, mist, and light. His art spans from installation and sculpture to photography and film. The artwork 'Your exhibition guide' is his first app; addressing experience and perception, it is a mobile laboratory that can be taken anywhere.
Shake your phone day or night, anywhere in the world, and the app’s clever search algorithm will present you with the most relevant artwork from Tate’s archive. It uses date, time of day, your GPS location, local weather conditions and ambient noise levels to match an artwork to that unique moment in time.
With artworks from Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, JM Turner and many more, Magic Tate Ball is a fun way to find art, giving you the Tate on tap!
Each artwork comes with a funny or facty Twitter-sized write-up. If it's a sunny day you might share in Constable's appreciation of the great British landscape. The rain might coax 'The Snail' by Matisse out of his shell. At lunch time you might find out why fat, and felt, are so important in Beuys's work, or a noisy after work drink might lead to Georg Baselitz explaining why he made a piece with a chainsaw.
Take your Magic Tate Ball to Tate Modern to unlock a super-secret bonus mode.
Magic Tate Ball is yours to shake, what artwork will this moment make?

The Muybridgizer freeze-frames the moving world, just as Muybridge did with subjects ranging from running horses to leapfrogging boys. In homage to the analogue Victorian beauty of the originals, users can Muybridge-ize their frames with grids and sepia tones, transforming their moving images into striking vintage-style pictures.

Featuring more than twenty of L. S. Lowry’s iconic urban landscapes, Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life has been created to complement the first major retrospective of Lowry’s work since the artist’s death in 1976.
Discover Lowry’s art in detail with the Exhibition Curators, ground-breaking Art Historians T. J. Clark and Anne Wagner, as they share their expert views on Lowry’s unique aesthetic vision. View archive footage of Lowry discussing his enduring fascination with working-class experience in modern industrial Britain, and his lifelong project to give it compelling pictorial form, and find out more about Lowry’s life and times with our exclusive timeline.
One of Britain’s best-loved artists, Lowry is often thought of as a rather naïve Northerner, a provincial painter of “matchstick men”. In fact, as this multimedia app shows, Lowry was a sophisticated artist, whose work is closely connected to the painting of modern life that originated in France in the nineteenth century. L. S. Lowry is Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city. His work repays serious attention, both for its unique pictorial achievement, and for its historic importance.
Using the ‘At Home’ and ‘At Tate’ options, you can enjoy the app as you explore the exhibition at Tate Britain or use it at home, as your own personal exhibition of L. S. Lowry’s work, to explore again and again.
Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life
The exhibition is at Tate Britain from 26th June 2013 – 20th October 2013
