30-10-2009 Playing God in Liverpool, UK
Picture this: You are walking through your local shopping precinct and notice yourself being stretched beyond all proportion on a big screen. Such crazy contortion antics became reality in Liverpool, England as Artist Chris O’Shea toyed with shoppers using an installation of God’s hand on a BBC Big Screen. O’Shea’s inspiration came from David and Goliath and Land of the Giants with a desire to inject an element of mystery and mischief into our busy lives. This project demonstrates how media channels are embracing reality in public places and simultaneously enhancing community spirit. T-Mobile embraced this trend, too, with their successful dance commercials in Liverpool Street Station.
