There was a great review of ROUND:Cambridge in The Arts Fuse by Margaret Weigel recently that I wanted to share:

ROUND: Cambridge Sounds the Depths of the City’s Public Art

The ROUND project succeeds well beyond its stated mission. One of the hazards of public art is that neighborhood residents tend to grow accustomed to them and, over time, they fade into the landscape. The app counteracts that tendency by both identifying works and encouraging direct viewings—Cambridge’s own exotica, rediscovered by intrepid urban explorers. At the very least, the app encourages viewers to pay closer attention to their surroundings by, ironically, interacting with a cell phone.
