Planet Obsolescence was an audio-visual installation allowing the people of Dunedin to become immersed in an interactive sci-fi-esque experience, using ultra-fast broadband alongside radio wave technologies, in a re-imagined afterlife for obsolete technology.
The Planet Obsolescence installation was built with over 60 discarded LCD monitors and other electronics to create an immersive environment. Via ultra-fast broadband, the user was a key participant, interacting with ‘stealth screens’ in a zone that was at once performative and isolating. The experience was remarkably magical.
This project was made possible through: GigCity Community Fund / Chorus and Digital Community Trust
