The Hello Wall: Twitter Controlled Public Art
Wasted Spaces offers a public art installation that moves beyond the physical domain to the virtual one.
We recently documented London’s Wasted Spaces, a group dedicated to turning abandoned and dilapidated properties into public displays of emerging arts. Their latest project moves public art it into the social arena with a Twitter based service.
Collaborating with large-scale installation artists Hellicar & Lewis, the duo have created an interactive installation for Wembley’s high road. Audience members are invited to tweet commands to @thehellowall. The subsequent directions will modulate the speed and appearance of various shapes.
