What a Happy Interactive Wall Tells Us WPC

Wall – Weekly Photo Challange

In Denmark, a wall spoke to the world, and the world spoke on the wall!

2000 wooden boards were used to create an interesting visual barrier, around a construction zone, in the center of the city. The purpose was to create an interactive pixel screen that could be personalized, by each member of the public, in an artistic way.

The so called “Happy Wall” is made up of colored recycled card that would change colour by reversing the card. One could then leave one’s mark, on the wall, using statements or words, even a personal message. Or you could simply create a pattern using color.

IMG_0134 (Small)How many scaffolds can claim to raise awareness of public issues, and boast they they are recycling materials, adding to public awareness and creating a public interactive art installation?  Add the social media aspect of the Happy Wall, and art has meshed with technology!**

The wall was the concept of Thomas Dambo, who used materials from the 2013 Roskilde Music festival in a creative way. His artwork is amazing!!!!

Something really inspirational to ponder about.

**Postscript: The Wall will be there until around April 2015
