Why is it that messages about the issues most relevant to our lives are quarantined away from public spaces? The choices we're offered in public are usually about what to buy. Admissions is an interactive public protest poem. It offers a choice displayed on LED panels suspended over a city laneway. As a pedestrian walks under one a sensor is triggered, and the data feeds a video artwork projected onto the lane's archway. The statements consist of animated typography constantly changing in size relative to the ratio of 'votes' they receive - resulting in an animated, visual duel between two ideas.
