Germaine Koh

Relay

4 January 2005 - 29 August 2005

Berlin-based Canadian artist Germaine Koh helped to welcome the Tall Ships Race to the Tyne with Relay: an intervention into the fabric of the BALTIC building.

Koh installed lights around the Level 4 outdoor viewing platform which flashed in Morse code - broadcasting messages received via SMS (text message). The beacon merged early technologies for communication and navigation with some of the more contemporary methods by which information flows today.

Visitors were able to text their own messages to Relay for the duration of the exhibition – at least one marriage proposal was recorded.
