Hello Lamp Post

It is a little embarrassing that my three-year-old holds up her hand and exclaims “my phone says…”

Taking her around the Hello Lamp Post installation might be just up her street.

It is a playful SMS platform, inviting people to strike up conversations with familiar street furniture using the text message function of their mobile phones.

It’s across the city from September 1 until September 30

Bemusical Chairs

Take a seat and enjoy the colours.

Bemusical Chairs is an organic-electronic installation blending light, colour and a nice sit down.

It is at the Open Market in London Road, from September 6 until September 29.
