Gary Oldman is narrating David Bowie’s “David Bowie is” AR App
On Tuesday, the David Bowie Is app will be available for purchase on iOS and Android devices, and serving as its digital tour guide will be none other than Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman. It’s a fitting choice, as Oldman and Bowie were pals, having both starred in Julian Schnabel’s 1996 film Basquiat. Oldman, too, was featured in Bowie’s music video for “The Next Day.”
David Bowie is, the record-breaking exhibition presenting the life and work of one of the most influential performers in cultural history, has been granted digital immortality. On the 72nd anniversary of Bowie’s birth, the David Bowie is AR application launches on iOS and Android platforms.
