Audio Tour Hack Crew Returns with ‘Unadulterated’

HK Creative founder/Prettybird director Hal Kirkland and a collective of ad industry folks including Mark Svartz are back with another Audio Tour Hack exhibit at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. You might remember ATH from their “Artobots” installation at the MoMA from a few months ago. This time, though, the focus turns from Decepticons to the decisive minds of children ages 3-10, who will play art critic and tour guide as part of the Hack’s new “Unadulterated” show at the museum.

According to the ATH crew, each piece in the tour is “expertly” analyzed by the kids, with each sharing their “unfiltered perspective on everything from basic composition all the way to the deeper meaning behind each piece.” If the video above is any indication of what’s in store, we’re totally in. If you’re joining in, you can download the “Unadulterated” tour for free and get more info here before your visit.

‘I Hate You, Kelly Donahue’ Author Seeks to Reinvent the Audio Tour

Mark Svartz, the former BBH NY ACD responsible for such projects as the Google “Street Boo” Halloween costume and the author of last year’s interactive novel/diary I Hate You, Kelly Donahue, is back with his latest initiative, Audio Tour Hack, which is essentially a collective of ad industry folks who “use creative storytelling to redefine the way people perceive their surroundings.” This guy doesn’t take a break, does he?

Alongside project mastermind Hal Kirkland, a former CD at NY’s Johannes Leonardo and current CD of HK, Svartz and Audio Tour Hack are looking to first transform a sculpture exhibition at the Guggenheim done by world-renown artist John Chamberlain. The first of these audio tour hacks is called “Artobots,” a play on the Transformers canon that runs through May 13 at the renowned New York museum. You can learn more here and listen to the 26-minute “Artobots” piece, which honors the 10th anniversary of the Decepticons defeating the Autobots on Feb. 24, 2028. Wait, what?
