WECOMEINPEACE was invited to be part of the EXTRA programming at the Nuits Sonores (Lyon, France) with , an interactive video installation via text messaging.
How does it work?
gives the public the opportunity to express itself via visuals of celebrities such as James Dean, Blondie, Jane Fonda, Kanye West or Nietzche. Rebellious, hype, militant, arrogant, nihilist… The idea is the play with everyone of these characters’ personalities. With a mobile phone, all one needs to do is send a text message (they aren’t surcharged). First you pick from one of the 5 characters you would like to give voice to by typing a number between 1 and 5. Then, write you text message. The character then appears with your quotation.
