    Wander

    Austin's innovative Art In Public Places project has conjured up an excellent choose-your-own-adventure sort of experience that incorporates actual sculpture on display around our urban hub. Roam the streets, roam the art, deep in the heart of Texas.

    Your Playable City: Shadowing

    Here's a fun new Downtown installation, created by Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier, in which streetlights play back the shadows of those who pass beneath them. No, for real. As a citizen walks under the lights, "the shadow of a previous visitor will walk, hop, or dance beside them, and then their own movements will be captured and displayed to the next passerby." And here's a map of locations.
