Sky Petition City

Will Pappenheimer + Zachary Brady

“Where is Petition City?” a man asks in Beijing during Zhao Liang’s 2009 Chinese film, “Petition.” It has become evident that Washington institutions no longer listen to the voice of the people. We need something we've never tried before. It is time to use sky writing to leave messages and pictograms over strategic institutions all over the Washington so that they will take notice. The mobile App, Sky Petition City, creates sky written messages and drawings in virtual airplane trails for the visions, thoughts and concerns of citizens and creative thinkers. Normally out of the financial reach of the general public, this grand scale sky image now becomes available for the general populace as a means of inescapable textual or pictorial address and redress. As each person’s contribution is replaced by the next, previous sky written imagery will be stacked onto the Washington Monument for further consideration.

MyMirror City at the Copenhagen Art Festival

MyMirrorCity transforms the Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center Nikolaj Church building, the surrounding area and as much of Copenhagen as possible into a city of mirrored buildings. Participants take a picture of themselves (or any image of their desire), upload it, and it then appears on every facet of all the buildings around them in augmented reality space. When a second person uploads their image, it appears on alternate building facets such that a self-image dialogue is created. The cityscape, now viewed through the cell phone or ipad, is a multi faceted architecture of this interpersonal relationship of image exchange and juxtaposition. The project harnesses the widespread use of instant cell phone snapshots, uploaded to social media space as self reflection, as momentary chronological diary, as personal broadcast, as response. This daily practice, this obsession, is here writ large. Participants leave their building sized images until the next users decide to add their own. A dialogue from one person to another is created through the ubiquitous presence of the last two participant's imagery.

Augment It! -Stedelijk Museum @ Trouw

Thu May 17, 2012 17:00 - Thu May 17, 2012

Amsterdam, Netherlands

4 – 6 pm: Poetry on the Screen program
8 pm – 1 am: Augment It! program

Location: TrouwAmsterdam, Wibautstraat 127, Amsterdam
Language: English
Entrance price: € 10 / € 7,50 (students) for evening program / afternoon program is free of charge
Tickets and reservations: On sale at www.trouwamsterdam.nl. Please make a reservation for the afternoon program ‘Poetry on the Screen’ via www.letterenfonds.nl/rsvp.

The Stedelijk Museum and TrouwAmsterdam are very pleased to present Augment It! This special program in the TrouwAmsterdam building is devoted to all the possible forms of Augmented Reality (AR) that artists, poets, architects, and designers are experimenting with at the moment. With an extensive exhibition in De Verdieping, lectures in the clubroom, AR performances throughout the building, and a dazzling finale with an AR DJ, Augment It! presents all the many different possibilities of AR today!

Augmented Reality involves complementing reality with virtual digital images. In a search for the seamless interface between man, machine, and reality, a great deal of work is done to develop AR, for example, using special spectacles, smartphones, or webcams. But what are the latest trends? What can poets do with this new medium? What does AR DJing look like? How does the human body relate to this virtual reality? Augment It! will answer this and many other questions.


"Sky Mills" at Brooklyn Utopias, April 5

Thu Apr 05, 2012 19:30 - Sun Jun 24, 2012

Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Will Pappenheimer
Launch of "Sky Mills" at Brooklyn Utopias, April 5
Project Director and Curator: Katherine Gressel

Sky Mills

Taking a cue from the Dutch history of the Old Stone House, this project erects a series of new-style old-style fantastic augmented reality windmills that make wind power desirable for the Washington Park area. To complement and distract residents who might be opposed to windmills, a virtual skywriter plane will be driven by power from the Mills to draw pictures and messages in the sky submitted by members of the community visiting the Old Stone House. Skywriting and sky drawings will stretch from Grand Army Plaza to the East River.

The windmills and especially the propellers will be painted in optical colors such that watching them will have a have a hypnotic calming effect. The windmills can be used for all kinds of different energy transformation; wind into electricity, corn into biofuel, wind hydrogen battery charging, general battery charging and garbage to methane. The windmills hope to aid the detachment from the larger corporate city energy supply that has become unaffordable. Some of the windmill heads will be rotatable to vertical positions to obtain the very concentrated energy of passing tornadoes and severe macrobursts that increasingly appear during Brooklyn summers.

All of this is be visible through mobile smart phones and iPads via the commonly available "augmented reality" application, Layar. Download the free App Layar Augmented Reality Browser and install, search for the "Sky Mills” layer and launch. http://m.layar.com/open/skymills
