Contemporary Arts Center 44 East 6th St, Cincinnati, OH 45202 map
A huge, international artistic collaboration. A sturdy internet connection and a webcam. A projector. And several hundred water balloons. The second of a 2-part interactive performance, Shanghainati Games uses live webcam technology to connect residents of Cincinnati, armed to the teeth with water balloons, to a street full of pedestrians in downtown Shanghai. Basement 6, a Shanghai-based artist collective, will also be hosting an event where Shanghai residents get their chance to launch balloons at Cincinnati. A referee counts the virtual hits on either side. Only one city can win—come to the performance and make sure it’s Cinci!
