Your Name in Lights

My name is going up in lights on Wednesday 26 Jan 9:16:40 PM, Australian Eastern Daylight time. It's nothing to do with fame, just registered my name on this website as part of a massive art project:

"Iconic American conceptual artist John Baldessari is looking for people, who want their name in lights, but just for 15 glittering seconds.

Your Name in Lights reflects the changing cult of celebrity in modern society and recalls Andy Warhol's prediction that in the future everyone will have their 15 minutes of fame. Drawing on imagery from Broadway theatre displays and Hollywood films, this ambitious new work will involve more than 100,000 participants.

Register your name and watch it appear in lights on the Australian Museum’s William Street fa├žade.
