I ve been looking at these cheaply produced, super low resolution LED signs (the IRL animated gif ;-) for a while already.  End of last year I filmed this meaningfull pair in a kiosk window in Berlin and fell in love with them.  First I used the picture for the SPEED SHOW 5 title in Paris but I had to take it a bit further. :) You find LED signs in any shopping window especially in EU these days. There are also many OPEN signs in US but hardly any INTERNET signs. I had to change that! :)

The OPEN INTERNET intervention was produced during my residency stay at EYEBEAM.

    I’ve seen these all over Berlin. How much were they? Where can the be purchased? I wouldn’t mind bringing a pair back to the States.

  2. Fun. Yeah, fess up: where did you get the signs? I live opposite the späti on Torstr, makes me smile.

    Since we are on the topic …

    “Der gestürzte Verteidigungsminister hatte mit seinen Jägern im Netz einiges gemein, ist er doch ein Meister des Mash-Up und bediente sich des Copy and Paste.”

    I think Guttenberg deserves to be added to the FAT banner.
