By extrapolating from current trends, we can make some good guesses about future astonishing shows. Yet, when we think of future of nightlife , too often we restrict our imagination to particular areas: more gadgets for musicians, more lights, more projections, etc. But some of the truly exciting developments will be around festivals and shows that will improve culture and catalyze our creativity.
New technologies offer us opportunities for shaping the public spaces in which people move, behave and interact. It can even can accommodate a wide range of creative uses. The future idea would be that the whole festival’s space would be constantly changing, and everybody would be able to interact with it.
That’s why we are developing a space for the attendees to create a collective sculpture. The users will be able to place different building block pieces, anywhere on the table. The relationship between shapes and the positions will generate a soundscape of its own, as well as light patterns underneath the pieces.
