Detours & Destinations was a joint project between Heaps Decent, Shopfront, the Sydney Opera House and the Department of Juvenile Justice.
As part of this project I headed creation of a large scale interactive installation at the Sydney Opera House which framed the stories of at-risk young people from western Sydney, including those from Lomandra School and Miimali. Visitors to the Sydney Opera House could mix, mash and explore visual and sonic fragments of these stories using a giant UV dance floor controller and network of netbooks.
Michela Ledwidge developed an SMS and Twitter component for remote worldwide interaction with the installation. Sasha Cohen assisted with Pure Data programming.
For this project I was funded by the Australia Council For the Arts, Digital Culture Fund.
