Solar Pink Pong
Interactive installation. Computer controlled colour mirror, motion sensor, solar panels.
Solar Pink Pong is a hybrid of a street and video game. Players of this game can interact with an animated pink sunlight reflection on the street using their bodies and shadows. The device that makes this game possible works autonomously and completely off the grid.
“Solar Pink Pong is Kick-the-Can for our age, and for all ages. It passes the ancient torch of joyful physical exploration by making video gaming delight visible in our built world.” Eric S. Rabkin
