Abstract:

  • Keywords: large screens, transnational communication, cultural public sphere, media space, public space, Federation Square.

    This paper is based on an ARC Linkage grant on the use of large screens as communication platform for an experimental transnational public sphere. The project involves linking large screens in Melbourne and Seoul for three ‘urban media events’: “SMS_Origin” and “<Value>”, “Hello” and “Dance Battle”. We argue through these experiments that large screens situated in public space in metropolitan centres offer strategic leverage for understanding the potential for networked media to form public sphere.
