Haunting and ethereal, Someone Come Find Me is a live sound poem, a video art work and a public installation for the open sea, all in one. A 21st century message in a bottle, originally made for the English coast, it’s being remixed for Jakarta’s celebrated beach front at Ancol.
A special opening event will be held on 12 and 13 November.
Sat 12 Nov, 19.00, Lagoon Beach, Ancol - Launch event
You can send a virtual message in a bottle via SMS to a buoy off the coast of Jakarta: a private thought, a cry for help, a postcard for someone far away. Your message will be translated by the buoy and flashed out to sea in morse code, visible for miles and miles.
Sat 19 – Sun 20 Nov, all day, as part of Digital Design Weekend - Live feed and public engagement
Visitors to the Digital Design Weekend can send their messages from Kota Tua and see the live feed of their thoughts being flashed out: they will also be visible on a live link-up at FACT in Liverpool, half a world away.
