An interactive street game created for WWF’s Earth Hour celebrations.
Earth Hour is an annual event organised by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to raise awareness about climate change. I was asked to create some outdoor projections for the event, so I created this interactive artwork which allows people to participate with their bodies. A camera outlines their silhouette on the building and Earth drops from above which they must catch. If you can stop the Earth from falling for ten seconds, you are congratulated. If dropped, you lose.
I created this artwork by typing code in c++ using the brilliant openframeworks toolkit. None of this would be possible without the openframeworks and its community.
