New Anthems V

New Anthems V is the latest chapter in the ongoing series, and was part of Brisbane Airport's inaugural contemporary arts festival. This time it was Peter Allen's paean to homesickness rendered in massive helium filled custom designed balloons... “I still call Australia ___”

As with previous installations, by inserting words via SMS into iconic Australian texts, participants played with expressions of national identity.

A website recorded the list of contributions.

The Eye blog has an article with more information.

Architectural Review featured the series.
