Power To The People
by Altern8 Ltd
Power To The People (PTTP) is a series of playful interventions for public spaces; Instant Graffiti was the first. Like a giant Etch–A-Sketch, a ‘live drawing’ is projected onto the facade of a building and controlled by the public using a mobile device.
PTTP evolved from Altern8’s belief that any outdoor space can become a space for play. In today’s urban environments - where public spaces are often owned by corporations and consumers are bombarded by media based advertising - Altern8 use playful interventions (sound, image and even fountains) to reclaim public space, foster human connection and remind people that sometimes the greatest things are free.
