Invisible Light Garden is the latest interactive art installation by Melbourne creative studio Mosster Studio and it’s opening today in Artplay’s exhibition space. I guarantee that you and the kids will be wowed by the interaction between digital imagery and physical action.
In previous workshops Lady and I worked with the artists to help ‘make’ a garden using cardboard boxes fixed with stickers that are ‘read’ by the camera to produce different images. As the kids and boxes move the garden changes using light projections and sounds. It’s a variation of the pARk experience which was recently installed at Eastland Shopping Centre.
Children can explore the dark space using the cardboard boxes and to creative and interact with the garden.
Something about being in the dark seems to light kids’ imaginations!
The exhibition describes it as being most suitable for 4-12 years but it’s ok for all ages as long as the the child is comfortable with the dark and instructed to be gentle with the boxes and with other people.
