New Anthems I

New Anthems I the first of a series of interactive installations commissioned by the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Arts. By inserting words via SMS into iconic Australian texts, participants can play with expressions of national identity. Custom designed sculptural typography uses neon, fibre optics, LED displays, recycled cardboard and timber.

This installation quoted the opening line from the official national anthem: “Australian's all let us rejoice for we are young and free”.
