The popular pastime of skipping stones serves as the metaphor for this interactive piece, using the dark river surface as a projection canvas.
Passers-by engage with the work through their mobile phones via http://ket.ai/skip. A personal message is attached before skipping a virtual stone across the river surface, gesturing the phone accordingly. If the message reaches the other side, it is displayed at this highly frequented public place.
A discursive, location-based work that ties personal presence to an uncensored pubic media outlet, the project investigates freedom of speech and crowd psychology within a 'post-anonymous' microblogging context.
