The City of Subiaco hosted an Australian first on Saturday 18 October, when thousands of Instagram photos with the hash tag #lovesubiaco were collated to create a large printed mosaic of Subiaco icon The Regal Theatre. Over 5000 attendees at the Subiaco Train Station ‘Instaparty’ event were encouraged to photograph the occasion and create the digital landscape for what would become the public piece of art.
The community and visitors to Subiaco enjoyed a range of performances including stilt walkers, beat boxers, musicians, magic performers, break dancers, flash mobs and other roving performers. A variety of food and beverages on offer added to the fun and lively atmosphere.
The completed mosaic will now be put on display at various locations throughout the City of Subiaco, or alternatively, you can view a version of it here (JPG, 2MB).
The company that provided the technology, Instaprint, also featured the complete gallery of the photos collected on the day that make up the mosaic. It can be viewed by visiting the Instaparty gallery page.
