Abstract: Talking Statues was a unique, innovative project that combined cutting-edge digital technology with lively, imaginative content to animate previously silent statues across London and Manchester. By simply swiping their smartphone, the public could be engaged in a spontaneous cultural encounter with a statue, able to find out more about its story and history. Talking Statues was the creation of Sing London and developed in partnership with Antenna International (technology partner) and the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries, University of Leicester (research partner). It was supported by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts -Nesta, Arts & Humanities Research Council and public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. [Taken from introduction]
