AND Festival – Portable Pixel Playground

Glowing Pathfinder Bugs from squidie on Vimeo.

This video is from the PPP website and shows a previous event but it was just the same in the Arthouse Square behind FACT today. I think its really aimed at children but the adults like me are just as excited by it. It was only here for today but will probably re-appear from time to time in the region. I hope so.

Family fun in Arthouse Square! Portable Pixel Playground is a unique digital art playground consisting of new artists’ commissions including squidsoup, Andy Best & Merja Puustinen. A bit like an adventure playground, a bit like a work of art, and a bit like a computer game, the playground has been designed to allow young people (and inquisitive adults!) to use everyday technologies in fun and creative ways, providing them with new, interactive and hands-on experiences of art and technology.

Portable Pixel Playground is brought to you by folly and is funded until 2010 by Big Lottery Fund’s Playful Ideas programme.
