“Hollywould Festival”: With an Interactive Model

Freewaves’ 11th
festival, HollyWould, will fuse media arts and Hollywood Boulevard,
transforming it into a massive, multifaceted screening room.
Spectacular international videos will explore "what could be" plus
"what is." "Hollywould Festival" is an effort to get people out walking
the boulevard trough a series of tours, and an interactive model
building exercise. Hollywould: Interactive
Public ProjectHollywould Art Installation is an interactive public
project. The installation will invite participants to envision public
and civic amenities in a 3-dimentional model form for a future
Hollywood. Participants will be provided with a medley of recycled
materials, ranging from colored blocks and popsicle sticks to discarded
metal and bottle tops. With these materials they are invited to create their ideal urban form on an oversized urban plot of streets, parcels and parks. For more information visit http://www.freewaves.org
