6 stolen masterpieces: Interpol counts on you!

  • 29.08.2012

PKA Wanabe, based in Waterloo and now a member of the Emakina Group, has developed a virtual platform around The Spiral, the cross-media crime-political series in which Internet users and viewers will have the mission of finding the six escaped works of art throughout Europe. The site is available since Tuesday, August 21. This online experience is a perfect match for one of the most exciting audiovisual creations of this fall. By taking part, you will be participating with thousands of other detectives in the creation of a real work of art together: The Spiral.

The Spiral is an interactive TV series produced by Caviar Films, which will be simultaneously at the center of discussions all over Europe. The series tells the story of a Copenhagen-based art community and its charismatic leader. They conspire to steal six of the most prestigious paintings ever held by European museums (see the trailer HERE ).

The TV series will be broadcast simultaneously in eight European countries: Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The challenge for the Internet users will be to find these expensive works on the web. Different artists will help you to take up this challenge through a real artistic treasure hunt.

The most discerning will be able to earn credits by playing a wide range of fun games, switching back and forth between real and virtual. The credits collected will allow them to trace the stolen masterpieces on a dynamic map of Europe.

Everyone can come out a winner in this cross-media adventure: every action taken will contribute to the creation of “The Spiral”, the most ambitious digital work of art ever conceived. On September 28 at 9 pm, the Spiral will be revealed to the public, in front of the European Parliament.
