What is Hello Lamp Post?

Hello Lamp Post is a playful platform, inviting people to strike up conversations with familiar street furniture using text message functions or Facebook Messenger, bringing to life the hidden stories of their cities.

By using the thousands of pre-existing identifier codes that label items of street furniture across a whole city, people can have unique conversations with particular objects, including (but not limited to) lamp posts, post boxes, bollards, manholes, bins, or telegraph poles.

More Information

Hello Lamp Post is a flexible and scalable system that can easily travel from one location to another, offering people from all around the world the chance to have interesting, surprising and often funny conversations with the street furniture they pass by everyday.

Hello Lamp Post encourages people to look at the city with fresh eyes and engage with systems we often take for granted – a chance for us to slow down, reflect and see the city as a playground.

From a hectic one-night event in Tokyo to a 10 weeks project in Austin, Hello Lamp Post is a flexible and adaptable system that can easily be taken around the world and displayed in virtually any location.

Now in it’s 10th city, Hello Lamp Post is ongoing, with installations scheduled for the rest of 2017 and beyond. Would you be interested in taking it to your city?! Please click here !
