Germaine Koh: Relay (04)

Germaine Koh: Relay (04)
Archive Shelf Location 6C4(1)
Publication Date Jul 2005
Description Koh installed lights around the Level 4 outdoor viewing platform which flashed in Morse code - broadcasting messages received via SMS (text message). The beacon merged early technologies for communication and navigation with some of the more contemporary methods by which information flows today. Visitors were able to text their own messages to Relay for the duration of the exhibition – at least one marriage proposal was recorded.
