If you weren’t able to check out the acclaimed David Bowie Is exhibition, then there’s good news on the horizon, with the exhibit being reborn as a smartphone app.
Back in 2013, London’s V&A museum announced the debut of David Bowie Is, an exhibition which displayed a wide array of Bowie memorabilia. From costumes to rare tour artefacts, it was undoubtedly a major event for fans of the musical icon.
While the exhibition managed to make its way down to Australia in 2015, it wrapped up earlier this year, following a final showing in New York City. However, if you missed this stunning presentation, there’s no need to worry, because it’s about to come to the palm of your hand.
According to a post on the official David Bowie website, the exhibition is set to be turned into an augmented reality mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
Planned for release on January 8th, 2019 – what would have been the David Bowie’s 72nd birthday – the app is set to mirror the experience given to those who visited the exhibition.
In addition to allowing users to examine each and every object in 360-degree detail, it will also feature a number of items that weren’t available in the original exhibit.
“Alongside these are more personal items such as never-before-shown storyboards, handwritten setlists and lyrics as well as some of Bowie’s own sketches, musical scores, and diary entries, revealing the evolution of his creative ideas,” explained the musician’s website.
The app is set to launch in just under two months, but if you’re keen for more info, head along to the official website, where you can sign up for updates as well.
