Abstract

This paper describes the pilot portal project, involving development of public installations in two distant locations, which will act as portals into each other. The current state of the world is calling for new means of world-wide communication and understanding. The Portal Project is a work in progress. Its objectives are to connect people and places, and to encourage broad cultural and environmental observation and reflection. Portals will be supported by a network of cameras streaming live video which is received and projected by plasma screens in other locations and collectively displayed at a website. The video installations will promote awareness and communication among participating foreigners.
