Getting the Message Out at COP 15
December 18, 2009
While top diplomats and leaders negotiate at the Copenhagen Climate Summit, the DR Concert Hall is projecting climate messages from around the world onto its Martin-animated facade for the world to see.
Danmarks Radio (DR), Denmark’s national public service broadcaster, in cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has invited people from across the globe to make their voices heard during the Dec. 7-18 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.
"The climate is a common concern, so we thought it was natural to use the Concert Hall’s big blue screen to give everyone a chance to express their attitudes, hopes and expectations to the climate summit participants," says Lars Silberbauer Andersen, the man behind the initiative along with Web editor Casper Bech from the Foreign Ministry. Silberbauer Andersen is creatively responsible for DR’s blue screen facade.
The DR Concert Hall’s innovative animated façade, an installation of Martin Exterior 1200 Image Projectors™ that cast color changing light and moving images onto the building, debuted nearly one year ago.
Climate messages - 14,000 received to date and counting - can be seen during evening hours throughout the conference. Personal climate messages can be submitted through www.greetings.cop15.dk.
