The 'Great Street Games' was a giant, networked inter-city game played between Gateshead, Middlesbrough and Sunderland (all in the North East of England) between 28th October and 1st November 2009.
The piece was created to explore a sense of connection and playfulness in multiple urban open spaces, using only projected light and sound.
The essence of the game was to knock the pucks of light into the goals at each end of the playing area, when they would be instantly transferred to the playing area in another city.
This footage is from Baltic Square, Gateshead. I'm working on an edit at the moment with all cities, but I thought this moment captured the spirit of the piece well and was worth uploading in its unedited state.
More information about the piece can be found at greatstreetgames.org.uk . It was commissioned by the Great North Run cultural programme greatnorthrunculture.org
