Daan Roosegaarde ‘Digital playground’

Marbles-3-Roosegaarde_original

These public sculptures by Daan Roosegaarde are moulded interactive pieces, stuffed full of LEDs, speakers, sensors and the like which respond when people approach or touch the shapes. Located in a public square in Amsterdam, they change colour when they recognise someone is close and make whale sounds. They also communicate with each other, making this square where people congregate and meet feel even more connected and alive. By making the pieces interactive, Roosegaarde draws people in, creates interest and excitement whilst providing a ‘show’ in which the viewer plays an important role.
