Internationales Festival für urbane Erkundungen
International festival of urban exploration
5.-14. October 2012, Vienna (A)
participatory art // interactive light experience
Created from steel, metal pull-strings, and 5,000+ light bulbs (both illuminated and burnt out) CLOUD asks the viewer to participate by experiencing the work first hand – standing beneath the structure and pulling lights on and off, creating the flickering aesthetic of an electrical cloud.
// Tomorrow the ground forgets you were here
“and when there was nothing left we had to create something,
we made words out of water so they could flow between us,
we waited for a boat to come,
hoping these seas we made would not dry out”
The sound of the world becomes the music to this new cinematic experience. You are invited to walk and live in streets you know, but invisible as an angel, while custom electronics pick up the noise of the city around you and remix it into music. Satellite positioning lets your journey shape the soundtrack and narrative, while fragments of peoples thoughts drift into your ears as you pass them…
21 Balançoires // interactive music installation
The installation offers a fresh look at the idea of cooperation, the notion that we can achieve more together than separately. The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation.
The project stimulates ownership of the public space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.

participatory art // capture magic moments
Mémorama is a series of observation platforms that give access to hidden landscapes and invites visitors to take part in a live collection of postcards.
An integrated camera system frames these unique vantage points and allows people to playfully capture these magic moments and create personal postcards from them.
The photos are immediately available via a web platform and can easily be found and shared, resulting in a growing collective archive that spreads around the world.
Confessions // participatory public art
Confessions is a public art roject by Candy Chang. She invites people to anonymously share their confessions and see the confessions of people around them in the heart of the Las Vegas strip.
It’s about sex, love, or fears of dying alone. By collecting the confessions of the hotel’s visitors, this project seeks to create a cathartic sanctuary for this temporary community and help us see we are not alone in our quirks, experiences, and struggles as we try to lead fulfilling lives.
Nike+ Paint with your feet // creative advertising
For the launch of the Nike Free Run+ 2 City Pack series, YesYesNo was invited to develop software that would allow runners to create dynamic paintings with their feet using their Nike+ GPS run data.
Using the software the participants were able to play with the mapping and adjust the composition of their run which was then outputted as a high resolution print for them to take home. At Nike Innovation Lab each runner’s name, the distance they ran and their run path was lasered onto a custom fabricated shoe box, which contained a pair of the ‘City Pack’ shoes from their city of origin.
Software was made with openFrameworks v007b and uses Moka’s ofxTileSaver addon.

Connecting Light // participatory digital art
Connecting Light is a digital art installation along Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. It investigates borders, imagining them not as a line of division, but as a source of connection.
The installation consists of hundreds of large-scale, light-filled balloons transmitting colors from one-to-another, creating a communication network spanning over seventy miles. Audience members are invited to participate by sending personalized messages along the light-lined wall at a number of viewing locations or the Website and companion mobile app.
If you access the connectinglight.info website from a mobile phone (smart phone) such as android or iOS device, you’ll be presented with the the option to submit a message.
