Tin Can Project: Chalk Dispensing Machine for Spontaneous Creativity


Thu, Sep 5th, 2013 10:00 by capnasty NEWS

Website Never Crew brings to attention the Tin Can Project. With a machine that gives out packs of coloured chalk, passerby were invited to express themselves on the surrounding walls.

This new variant of the "Funnel Project" (proposed at the competition for the tunnel Lugano-Besso) has been specifically re-designed for the "Cigni" underpass of Lugano (Riva Albertolli) and for the duration of Longlake Festival. It focuses more on the aspect of communication as interaction within the ordered chaos as a result of the differences and similarities that characterize each comparison and make it possible.

Passers-by were be able to participate and express themselves freely, encouraged throughout the duration of the event from targeted interventions and from the gradual layering of their own interactions within one or more temporary new "discussions". Using the website and social networks (such as Instagram and twitter) everyone were be able to share everything and connect outside the geographical place. For a month, 24 hours on 24, 7 days out of 7, "Tin Can Phone Project" was living independently of what it was made.
