Colour by Numbers

A 72 meter high tower stands at Telefonplan in Stockholm. The windows on the ten floors along the tower body constantly change colour. Anyone can call a number and control the colours in the windows of the tower by mixing red, green and blue light with their phone. Check out the link here and then see the other very interesting installation projects that the designers have done here. The developers say that “Besides the aesthetic sides of Colour By Numbers we hope that it can be a contribution to the debate about democracy and public space here in Stockholm.”

This project is similar to another series of projects by Paul Notzold which he calls “SMS enabled interactive street performance”. In other words, A participant sends a text message to the provided phone number and it is then displayed inside the speech bubble. Check out some of the works here.
