Hydro Active City
Presentation of exhibition and of “Water memory” project by Piotr Wyrzykowski
“Hydro Active City” was an innovative exhibition in public space, using the latest tools and mobile technologies (tablets, smartphones, wi-fi), which was held on 31st May – 2nd June, 2013 in Gdansk.
The common denominator which inspired all the works was the element of water which inspired artists in various ways. The “active” element was also important so that the installations were more than just things to be seen and each of our viewers was able to also actively participate in the exhibition. The use of new media was also important to us hence our table and smartphone applications and sound installations.
Art Line is an international art- and culture project in collaboration between 14 partners from 5 different countries in the South Baltic region; Sweden, Poland, Germany, Russia and Lithuania.
