Fri Jun 11, 2010 00:00 - Mon Jun 07, 2010

Particpiants Required - FACADE 2010

People are invited to visit the Façade website, and through a simple interface, ‘paint’ a prominent building in the city of Melbourne, Australia, using a series of block patterns and a near-infinite array of colours. The designs will then be projected nightly throughout the duration of The Light in Winter Festival, from 11 June - 4 July, 6.00pm - 10.00pm. The event will be webcast so that remote participants can view their projection.

Create your own design now at: Entries accepted NOW till 4 July, 2010.

I am curious to know the legal implications in relation to copyright of this work. Did you have to seek permission from the uploaders? I am creating a video piece from youtube video content and have been asked to confirm what the copyright issues are. BTW I am in Australia, and the final work will not be broadcast on the internet.



Re: Facade

hi nahoum,
What is it that you find interesting about the project. The interface was designed with simplicity in mind and so that it would be accessible. If children were to be using it as a colouring book I would be thrilled. Why do you consider it a waste?

a very belated reply,


Facade - Call for Participation

Public Art Work - Call for Participation.

Facade: Telematic Installation/Performance
DATES: Projections - Saturday, 2 October, 2004.
VENUE: Federation Square, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

A telematic installation allowing the public, to playfully decorate the
exterior of a building in the City of Melbourne, Australia.

The web site allows participants to 'paint' the exterior of the
ACMI/SBS building at Federation Square. The designs are created using a simple java applet available on the web site, and are stored with the participants name and comments if provided. On the evening of 2 October 2004, from 8pm onwards, these designs are projected back onto the said facade. A simple web cast of the event will allow remote participants to view the projections. An archive is created of all participants designs alongside the resultant projection of that design.

The project engages the public in an unprecedented and intimate manner. Through the facilities provided by the internet, the local and international community is able to participate in a playful
intervention, affecting a prominent public space in the City of
Melbourne, Australia.
