blog > archives: You Are Swan

Here’s one from the archives…

When the Laneway Festival asked us to make something new for their festival, we proposed a computer game for the street. We created an interactive game by hacking an Xbox Kinect with some custom software. You can then use your whole body to control the game.

The location is a great little spot in Perth’s Cultural Centre where a pool has been refurbished with native plants and reeds. What better place to play a game as the digital representation of Perth’s infamous black swans? The aim of the game is to be the best damn swan you can be (oh, and try not to hit the rocks–you will die).
