Gilding the World

by Sayraphim on January 7, 2012

Gilding the City was launched about a week ago with the first installation around Melbourne. It’s now spreading around the world!

I am a member of the playful UK society Agency of Coney and since this is a playful project, I sent a general email out to see if anyone would like to participate and Gild their own city.

I got (and continue to get) a fantastic response from quite a number of people who were keen to install a piece in their home town.

So yesterday I sent off the first batch of pieces to start Gilding other cities. The packages went to London, Brighton, Brimingham, West Sussex (UK) and Cohutta, Georgia (USA). Currently there is another package on my coffee table with two pieces bound for Portland and Seattle.

I’m so thrilled that this project has gone international and I’d like to thank all the people who offered to Gild their cities. Hopefully there’ll be a bunch of photos heading my way of the installs, which I’ll share on the blog and on the flickr page. And do let me know if you’d like to Gild your city too!
