THE PROJECT.........................

Sandpit was engaged by MASH and Renewal SA to augment existing hoarding in the Adelaide Festival Centre Plaza rejuvenation project. The challenge was to create a robust, fun, sculptural installation that would attract passersby to interact.

Visitors cross the Riverbank Bridge and see the installation in it’s ambient mode in the distance as they walk. In ambient mode, the rods slowly rotate in unison, as well as alternating in their rotations.

If visitors stop at the end of the footbridge they see a large dot on the ground, inviting them to approach. On the dot are instructions that indicate that you should stand on this spot and use your arms to interact.

At this point, the rods all stop in a horizontal or vertical position and illuminate a bright white colour. Visitors may then explore physical positions with their arms, which in turn magically affect the rods, mimicking their behavior with light and motion.

Once the visitor leaves, the rods return to their ambient mode, attracting new visitors.

THE TECHNOLOGY..........................

Kinect motion detect camera, custom LED rods, custom kinetic hardware, TouchDesigner
