Border lights


The 73 miles of the Hadrian’s Wall in the North of England will soon be turned into an artistic installallation that is both collective and participative. It will happen on the nights between August 31 and Sept 1st thanks to the concept by NewYork based artists YesYesNo (as part of the London Design Festival): a series of huge balloons, positioned alongside of the wall will be lit up following the input provided by the audience. The project, called Connecting Lights, promises a breathtaking show bordering between art, design and technology. The nicest thing? Everyone can participate proactively:  the LEDs that are inside the balloons light up following the instructions provided by an opensource software that can be downloaded from the site of the event and used on any smartphone to send light messeges and receive them. Wish I was there…
