Wander is a new public artwork that offers an immersive choose-your-own-adventure experience throughout downtown Austin. Created by artists Chris Gannon, Chadwick Wood and Brockett Davidson, with contributions from local authors and illustrators, the work comprises a mobile-optimized web app with four unique digital journeys and a sculptural starting point, entitled “Beacon,” sited near the entrance of Austin’s new Central Library. Wander will debut on December 9 from 3-5 pm at a free public celebration at the Central Library.

 

The launch event will include a discussion with the artists, readings from the participating authors, and a demonstration of the project for attendees wishing to begin their journey that day. Select locations will have surprises, and awards will be given to the group that makes it through the most chapters of a story.
