Trash This City
opens in Melbourne, Australia on March 30th at All Of The Above gallery. Trash This City is an interactive installation centered around the game Sim City. Trash This City is a unique event allowing participants to literally step into the computer screen and play the game. The game environment of Sim City will be translated into a real life cardboard city that can be manipulated and reconfigured. Visitors/ players will not only be able to move buildings and graffiti the streets, they are given the opportunity to destroy the piece – as possible only in the game.

Trash This City is the first work by Nirmala Shome, recent graduate of
Media Communications at Melbourne University and examines the powerful metaphor the game provides for life, and also the exhilaration involved in destruction.
Trash This City will only be open for one day. The card board model will cover the majority of the gallery floor forcing visitors into unavoidable contact with the game interface.

Visitors will be provided with markers to tag and graffiti the city, and are able to destroy the city at the end of the night. Video footage will also be streamed live from the floor of the model and projected onto the gallery walls.



PLEASE NOTE: Nirmala Shome is available for interviews regarding the
exhibition. Please call Nirmala Shome, on +61 (0)411711729, or contact All
