YOUR TEXT HERE by Marcos Zotes

“YOUR TEXT HERE (by Marcos Zotes-UNSTABLE) is a participatory, site-specific light installation that aims at empowering local communities by providing a tool that transforms people voices into citizen proclamations the size of buildings. Participatory members of the audience are invited to submit anonymous text messages through their mobile phones with total freedom of speech, engaging in a dynamic dialogue with the city.

The project aims at bringing citizens together as a community in public space, providing a tool for public expression through which they can share their feelings, identities, secrets, criticism, wisdom, support, advice, frustrations, etc. Each received anonymous text message is automatically projected for about 10 to 20 seconds. In this way, the space becomes an arena for debate, a catalyst for social interaction.”
