There are two new fun interactive installations at the Big Screen Liverpool this week, both screen-specific commissions. Hand from Above is unique to Liverpool and will appear here before touring to 21 sites across the UK in the BBC/Olympic Big Screen network. It is only the second ever showing of Hungry Hungry Eat Head after it’s premiere at the Big Screen Edinburgh during this year’s Fringe Festival.[/caption]
BBC Big Screen Liverpool: HAND FROM ABOVE
As part of the Abandon Normal Devices festival of cinema and new media taking place at FACT, Hand from Above is a new commission for the Big Screen that aims to interrupt our normal routine as we rush by. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, designer Chris O’Shea has created a giant hand that will plunge into view and pick up, tickle and even squash shoppers and pedestrians as they pass by. Look out!
Wed 23rd – Sun 27th September 2009, daily at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm for one hour each time.
BBC Big Screen Liverpool: HUNGRY HUNGRY EAT HEAD
Transform your head into animated cartoon characters by approaching the Big Screen as it becomes a magic mirror for one day only. Using motion-tracking technology, stewards will provide magic markers to hold to your chest in Clayton Square so that participants of all ages can switch their own head for that of a giant frog, furry monster or happy cloud.
Saturday 26th September 2009 ONLY, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm for one hour each time
