I was lucky enough to see Gabriel Orozco’s ‘Asterisms’ in the Guggenheim last year. With this piece in mind, I collected pieces of plastic washed up by the sea.
I want to create an interactive piece – perhaps the plastic is photographed individually, then on mouseover a piece of text, audio or video is revealed.
I’d like to create a story about each piece of plastic. I’ve created a mock up of how it could work but I’ll do a very small interactive test and upload too before proceeding.
Perhaps the objects could be placed on a surface and when picked up, trigger something..a projection / some audio etc

Bill Cheswick has already done some research into this area. I’ll get in touch with him and hopefully arrange a Skype or email conversation.
