Thirty years ago the movie Blade Runner introduced the visionary idea of turning entire building façades into large digital screens. Today this vision is becoming reality in an increasing number of cities across the world. The exhibition showcases six seminal media façades through large light posters and moving images as well as a selection of new media façade projects from around the world.
The exhibition is curated by M. Hank Haeusler and Martin Tomitsch and presented by the Media Architecture Institute and Customs House in collaboration with Vivid Sydney and ISEA2013.
