Thibault Brevet's 'Grand Central' display links online communication with art. The Swiss designer transferred text submitted on his website to a large piece of digitized paper, constantly rolling with the help of experts at the University of Art and Design Lausanne.
The Swiss student put on Grand Central as a part of his final graduation project. Visitors to the site were invited to submit anonymous messages which were in turn broadcasted at his exhibit. The memos are quite different from one another, with some verging on the disconcerting and others remaining upbeat and fun-loving.
At the heart of Grand Central is the notion of free speech. Those who participated in the event could speak and be heard without being identified, allowing them to exchange ideas and information candidly.
