The 19th Biennale of Sydney may be over, but Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller’s The City of Forking Paths (2014) is here to stay.

On Tuesday, 10 June The City of Forking Paths became part of the City of Sydney’s public art collection, City Art.

To experience the artwork, head to Customs House Foyer, between dusk and 9:30 pm, Monday to Saturday. You can borrow headphones and an iPod pre-loaded with The City of Forking Paths from the concierge desk in the foyer of Customs House, providing a credit card and photo ID for security.

The duration of the walk is just over 1 hour, concluding on Cumberland Street in The Rocks. Please return your iPod to Customs House within 30 minutes of completing the walk.

Alternatively, you can download the free app for The City of Forking Paths onto your own device and bring your own headphones. The app is over 1.8GB in size: download time over a standard ADSL2+ secure Wi-Fi connection may take up to an hour or more depending on the speed of your connection. Due to the large size, we recommend that you download it at home before arriving at Customs House and delete it from your mobile device after use. The app is GPS-activated and time-locked and will only play once you are inside the foyer of Customs House after dusk.

The app is compatible with the following devices Android™ – 2.2 and above (App size 1.7GB), Apple – iPod touch 4 and 5, iPhone 4 and 5, iOS 6.1 or later (app size 1.8GB).
