Interactive art happening held at the Portavilion stage at Splore Festival 2012, Tapapakanga Regional Park, New Zealand.
Participants of the funhouse were asked to walk blindfolded over a texture maze, swim through an underwater world, partner up for a slow-motion tango, make one giant human discoball, and bust out some robot dance moves. The happening had five instructions, over one hundred participants, lasted for 20 minutes, and made a lot of mess!
With thanks to the team of mimes (especially Sarah Finnigan-Walsh) who guided the audience and worked for months to bring the project together.
