for the installation “playground,” garamantis has created a space that not only invites visitors to become part of the artwork but also to create it themselves. through camera and laser-based systems, bodies and movements are captured on the artistic playground. in response, computer-generated visuals are generated. the interactive installation thus becomes a sensually perceptible space. all events happen in real time. visitors immerse themselves playfully in the immersive space. for example, on a wall in the installation, there are luminous touch-sensitive rings that can be touched. the feedback is directly and visually displayed live in another part of the room.

for the artists, the goal is to transform the space and demonstrate how changeable human perception is. as a result, the electronic work is constantly changing itself. every time visitors enter the installation, the artwork changes. they never finish the work.
