Your Name in Bright Lights

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Picture your 15 seconds of fame in bright, glittery lights ... on the other side of the world

Kaldor Public Art Projects and the 2011 Sydney Festival announced this week that American conceptual artist John Baldessari is looking for 100,000 participants for his latest installation -- a massive light display that will blink names on Australian Museum's William Street façade.

You can submit your name online, and the Sydney Festival will send you an email with the date and time your name will appear. Call it a good excuse to see your own 15 seconds of fame in person across the pond -- or check it out on the streaming webcam.
