DROPSTUFF.nl created a 'bridge' between the reopened cultural heart of the Netherlands, the Museumplein in Amsterdam, and Venice, the city where in summer 2013 the 55th most famous event for contemporary art in the world, La Biennale di Venezia will be organised.
The Bridge is formed by a live connection between two large public screens that are connected live through internet, and by using a special device; the Kinect. At the two sites, visitors can see and meet each other, and play a game together on the spot. Currently, eight artistic games are being developed by Dutch designers and student groups who were selected based on entries in an open competition.
Using the technology of the Kinect people can communicate by moving image and through movement. With the game applications designed by the developers, players can form a famous group of sculptures, perform a dance or even 'leap' between Amsterdam and Venice.
In the near future DROPSTUFF.nl will organise a tour though Europe to connect each time two different cities. In October 2013: Utrecht (The Netherlands) and Antwerp (Belgium)
