YesYesNo — Night Lights

In this install­a­tion YesYesNo teamed up with The Church, Inside Out Pro­duc­tions and Elec­tric Can­vas to turn the Auck­land Ferry Build­ing into an inter­act­ive play­ground. The job was to cre­ate an install­a­tion that would go bey­ond merely pro­jec­tion on build­ings and allow view­ers to become per­formers, by tak­ing their body move­ments and amp­li­fy­ing them 5 stor­ies tall. We used 3 dif­fer­ent types of inter­ac­tion — body inter­ac­tion on the two stages, hand inter­ac­tion above a light table, and phone inter­ac­tion with the track­ing of wav­ing phones. There were 6 scenes, cycled every hour for the public.

Ze Frank: My web playroom

On the web, a new “Friend” may be just a click away, but true con­nec­tion is harder to find and express. Ze Frank presents a med­ley of zany Inter­net toys that require deep par­ti­cip­a­tion – and reward it with some­thing more nourishing.
