Hybrid project consisting of a website, a construction set, a workshop, and an exhibition.
Our world is a world of pictures, more and more it is a world of videos. The Internet mirrors and designs this world- in its unofficial centre YouTube. Television and cinema turn people into passive observers. YouTube offers more, and YouPrompt goes one step further by asking you to get involved with the contributions more intensively. A phenomenon standing out in anthropological research on YouTube is the counterfeiting of videos. YouPrompt takes up this trend and accords it a new face through an independent platform.
The interactive installation “YouPrompt” consists of two speech-prompters, whereby on one real videos of popular speeches can be seen running continuously on the one speech-prompter, while on the other one can view the remakes by YouPrompt participants. If however, exhibition visitors enter the installation switches so as to allow for the possibility for the viewer to even make a speech in front of an imaginary audience; supported by speech text on the prompters.
