In the frame of the Guangzhou Light Festival (China) there will be sharing screens between the Northbridge Piazza in Perth (Western Australia) and Guangzhou. From 13 – 29 November the project ‘Peoples Screen’ offers people in Guangzhou and Perth the opportunity to co-create chance encounters and spontaneous interaction between these two cities.
By using ‘blue-screen’ technology at each location which will show a variety of converging scenes of Perth and Guangzhou, two different and separate audiences will be brought together on screen and will experience a shared place in a virtual world.
Developed by the artists and researchers Paul Sermon and Charlotte Gould from the University of Brighton in the UK, this installation adopts a playful and open approach to public urban video screens to manifest a truly interactive ‘Peoples Screen’.
