Making immersive & interactive experiences for young audiences

Installation art & performance design studio

Approach

Our designs are playful, sensory and interactive. We combine sensing technologies with crafts.

Our work considers the whole audience experience and how we can encourage interactivity and play, using all the senses to achieve an immersive experience. We specialise in making tangible interfaces that seamlessly combine traditional craft techniques with interactive technologies.

HOME:Zero

We are super excited to announce that we are one of the two winners of the National Gallery X -HOME: Zero commission. Our collaborators are Lakeside Arts and Mixed Reality Lab. We will be working with families in Nottingham to help co-design the installation in March 2022. Based around the National Gallery’s collection and stories, the experience will go beyond the Gallery’s walls and ignite wider media and public interest in climate change and household emissions, contributing to a popular movement to create cleaner, greener homes. We open at National Gallery X Studio in London and Lakeside Arts in May 2022. 

The Commissioner:
Nesta is partnering with National Gallery X (The National Gallery and King’s College London) to offer a unique Creative R&D opportunity to develop an experience that helps catalyse a net zero carbon future, inspired by one of the greatest collections of art in the world.
