“The Widget Art Gallery”, web-app for IPhone and IPad. The “WAG” is a mini 3-dimensional, single room gallery that fits into your pocket ‘cause I’ve developed it for IPhone, IPod Touch and I Pad. Every month, directly on your mobile, The “WAG” hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to the dynamic site-specific contest.
