We live in the Digital Age and it seems like a lot of kids (and adults!) alike are more likely to spend a Saturday swinging a Wii remote over their heads than spending a day looking at art. Don't get us wrong, we at the Annenberg Space for Photography are as guilty as anyone when it comes to our love of technology and this is most obvious with the Annenberg Audio Tour.
We designed the Annenberg Audio Tour to give guests additional details about select photographs throughout the exhibit. Our audio tour is simple. It consists of a series of QR (that's short for Quick Response) codes printed on caption cards throughout the galleries, headphones and an iPod provided by the front desk at the Space. You can also use your very own smart phone.
It's very easy to use. If you're not using one of the devices at the Space, just download a QR reader to your own smart phone, scan the QR code on the caption card and enjoy! It's information about the exhibit's photographers and images you can't find anywhere else. Each QR Code leads you deeper into the exhibit, giving you information about numerous images, some of them very iconic, and their subjects that you never knew before.
