Nocturnal Arts in Wollongong in 2016

We were commissioned by the Wollongong City Council to install our artwork interactive projection artwork Unlocked Melody as part of their Nocturnal Arts program to provide ntertainment and engagement with the community and visitors to the arts precinct after dark. We set our projection up in a laneway, with a motion sensor so it would react to the presence of people walking through the laneway at night.

We projected in the laneway on three Saturday evenings between between 17 February and 5 March. It has been an exciting experience to be able to do projection work outdoors and engage with passers-by to explain the content and the ideas behind our work.

Unlocked Melody is based on a collection of a few million passwords that were gathered from material posted online by various security researchers after some very public privacy breaches of some very large web entities  that occurred a few years ago. We created an application that would detect people’s presence and then display a password picked at random, which is then used to generate colours and sound.
