Abstract Playground AP1

2015, Software Interactive and Custom Controller
Abstract Playground AP1 is a screen based interactive artwork, part abstracted re-composition of Modernist architecture concerned with how forms occupy physical / digital space, part musical instrument encouraging users to “play” a potential building.

It was designed alongside people with learning difficulties over a 5 week D-Lab / LEVEL Centre co-commissioned residency at the LEVEL Centre, Rowsley, UK.

It exists as an installation displayed on a screen or projector with 2 control interfaces catering for people with a wide range of motor skills, and as a software artwork running on the web. Sound Packs by Oliver Payne, Will Hurt and Level Artists.
