project is a telematic installation/performance situated at Federation
Square, Melbourne, Australia. Coloured images of the East Shard
at Federation Square are projected onto the building itself. The
projected image will be aligned to match the actual facade, except
that the projected image will be altered in colour so as to superimpose
a change in hue on the building surfaces.
The public determines
what colours and design will be used through a java web interface,
which presents an image of the façade with basic tools for ‘painting’
the image. This strategy allows a participant anywhere in the world
with access to the internet to determine what will be projected.
The individual designs submitted by the participants are scheduled
and played out over the duration of the event, during the actual
staging of the physical component of the event, which will occur
from 6pm-10pm, June 11 till July 4, 2010.
Local participants will be able to view the event on site on
the night of the event, whilst those not able to physically
attend will still have an opportunity to see the projections
through a web cast of the event.
