Disappearing App to Map the Territory
The Disappearing, The Red Room Company's ambitious new app that maps all of Australia with poetry, heads north. For this year's Eye of the Storm Festival, The Disappearing will use poetry and technology to explore the Northern Territory's hidden stories. Some of the Territory's finest writers including Michael Giacometti, Leni Shilton, Kate Aldenhoven, Steve Hodder Watt and Penelope Drysdale have been commissioned to write new work for the app.
Their poems will join over 200 pieces by Australia's most celebrated writers, created especially for The Disappearing. Users can download the free app for their iPhone, iPad or Android device, which uses GPS technology to pinpoint poems about the area around them. Besides exploring the poetry of their place, users can upload their own poem to be published on the app.
Catch The Red Room Company at The Eye of the Storm Festival in Alice Springs on Saturday April 27 for a special panel discussion on Digital Futures, and on Sunday April 28 to discuss Poetic License - click here for more details.
