Abstract Playground: AP1 invites you to interact with an abstract audiovisual scene, featuring geometry inspired by modernist architecture.
AP1 was trialled and tested by LEVEL artists, who are artists with Learning Disabilities, during a 5-week residency with the aim of creating an accessible and engaging interactive piece. AP1 has gone on to be shown around the world from Buenos Aires to Beijing, spawning three sequels: AP2, 3 and 4. Abstract Playground: AP1 was co-commissioned by LEVEL, based in Derbyshire, and D-Lab. The work was also shown at EUREKA.
Will Hurt uses computers to create brightly coloured, playful, digital interactives which cater to people of all ages and abilities. The interactives respond to the geometry of the physical sites in which they are installed, abstracting and re-presenting the local architecture and landscape. These site-specific interactives bring people together, forging connections and affording them a moment to play, and leave people with lasting memories of novel playful experiences.
