Sydney-based artists Michaela Gleave and Fausto Brusamolino bring Messages of Hope, Messages of Love to the South Australian skies as part of The Avalanches’ residency.
Taking the form of a collaborative poem, the work is composed of messages submitted by the public via this website during an open call. From these submissions, the artists will arrange the selected messages to form an intuitive and heartfelt collective tribute to the people of Adelaide that will be beamed across physical and digital space. These illuminated messages will be viewable in the sky and via a live webcam stream here.
Gleave and Brusamolino’s project – presented in conversation with The Avalanches – is a love letter to Adelaide. It is conceived as a timely and poetic response to the strange reality of these times and encourages messages of love, hope, resilience, strength and compassion.
