Hand From Above

Hand From Above encourages people to question their normal routine instead of allowing themselves to simply rush from one destination to another. Passers-by will be playfully transformed by a giant hand from an urban screen. Unsuspecting pedestrians will be randomly tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a digital deity. Actions change depending on how crowded the scene is or weather conditions. Originally commissioned by the Abandon Normal Devices festival.

LummoBlocks

LummoBlocks is inspired by the legendary ‘Tetris’ game and designed to create social interaction between people in the public space where a digital facade is used to visualise the game. The mechanics of the game are similar as in ‘Tetris.’ Players must try to solve the largest possible number of lines in order to prevent the stacked pieces from reaching the top of the screen. The aim is to create a playful interactive space located experience.

European Citi(zen)s with child's eyes

How do cities and citizens look like in the eyes of a child? What differences are there when described by an adult or a child? What do kids find important in a city? KIBU will show you in an interactive animation.
Kitchen Budapest is currently making a workshop for 4-6 year-old children and imaging cities and citizens in drawings together. After the workshops, these drawings will provide the basis for the development of the visuals (figures) and movements.

Action Flocking is a collective action painting project, where movements of people are visualised into graphics and particle animations projected onto the screen in real time. The project explores and demonstrates collective game and visualisation concepts that are based on tracking user movements via camera and RFID sensing.
The concept includes a variety of game scenarios and visualisation techniques where some can be played between cities. The purpose of the project is to invent new participatory and playful forms to urban events.
