Occupy the Screen and Peoples Screen are interactive installations that virtually connect two public spaces by capturing people’s actions and making them meet on the screen – as a third space – in an attempt to “reclaim the urban screens” through ludic interaction and Internet-based videoconferencing. For instance, by using visual references to site-specific landmarks in Berlin and Riga for Occupy the Screen, and Guangzhou and Perth for Peoples Screen, audiences are invited to occupy the screen by becoming part of the site-specifically designed virtual landscapes of the statues and sites in both cities, with scenes reminiscent of the crowds claiming the Brandenburg Gate after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
