The Helloworld Project is a global interactive text installation combining language, landscapes and communication technology to create a visual dialogue. From December 9-12, 2003, people from all over the world will be invited to send in messages, either by sending an SMS to a dedicated number or by going to http://www.helloworldproject.com . These messages will be projected onto mountains and buildings in Geneva, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro and New York . Video images of the projections will be broadcast live on the project website and at the World Summit on the Information Society in Geneva. The Helloworld Project is a collaborative happening, an invitation to take control of public space with the power of words. The projection sites are: Jet d'eau (water fountain), Geneva, Switzerland Air India Building, Mumbai, India Morro dois Irm„os ,Rio de Janeiro, Brazil UN Building, New York, United States
