TENTACLES


When you engage, your device springs to life, emitting sounds and enveloping people around you in the experience. Players and non-players become acutely aware that the creatures on the large screen represent participants who are in the crowd around them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overview:

What's the idea behind Tentacles?

 

Large public displays are transforming our world. Moving images, animated text and videos are everywhere: on elevators, train platforms and roadside billboards.

 

The artistic team behind Tentacles set out to create an ambient play environment in this public space. It was intended to be always on – something to be discovered within the city. Without a beginning or an end, participants could join in or leave casually.

 

From within the crowd, viewers can step onto the stage of the projected environment – to display themselves in action, engaged with other virtual creatures. Movements and gestures become part of this spontaneous public performance. Like on a dance floor, where rules about decorum, engagement with strangers and physical contact are suspended.
