Destination Street Art Toronto

Rabbani, Rida (2016) Destination Street Art Toronto. Masters thesis, OCAD University.

Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Rabbani, Rida
Abstract:

The designed platform facilitates a conversation between street artists and their spectators in terms of the street art of Toronto. It is a tool to be used in order to build a digital community, to represent the artists’ views, and understand public art. By allowing them to freely express themselves through their own art, this platform has started a dialogue onto the street art itself. This is done in the way spectators capture, engage and show their relationship with the public art of Toronto. Collectively, the submissions are mapped onto a photo map, using geotags, representing the actual location of the street art on the roads of Toronto that is uploaded onto an online platform. The product of Destination: Street Art Toronto is a whole new digital world, similar to a segment of Second life, as it exists outside of the physical realm visualized onto a virtual environment.
